Synopsys somehow believes that Red Hat Linux 6.2 is the current
version (I exaggerate, but not much), and builds its libraries against
that (and the consequent glibc).

The solution to this particular problem is to compile a little C file
that will supply the missing symbols (e.g. _ctype_toupper) and link in
the resulting .o file.

Contact me off-list for a copy of such a C file (all straight out of
old glibc sources).
