I knew I wouldn't be the first to have seen this but didn't think it
would be so recent.

I wonder why my search did not throw your post up. I think I must have
assumed it must be NetBSD specific (only recently started using that
platform) so searched with the term NetBSD rather than just BSD.

I don't think I had found sac-dev either ?

Sounds like the inclusion of <ctype.h> is the way to go, rather than
removing the macros for those few systems that don't have the system
calls.

Thanks for the feedback,
Kevin
