    include              _ctype.h 
  Restore ctype(3) ABI forward compatibility in 6.x world. This was broken
  with last ctype(3) single-byte and multi-byte separation for fixing
  operating on UTF-8 locale. To be specific, we introduced a new symbol in
  libc. And this symbol is referred via inline functions here. So, you can
  not run a binary built with this version of libc on an older system. To
  restore the compatibility, make these functions built as non-inlined
  form (see lib/libc/nomarco.c) and MFC rev 1.32 which drops the usage of
  that symbol in question for __isctype(). As this may impact performance,
  I only intend to fix in 6.x, but not 7 (not yet released) and 8 (it's HEAD).
