itkDB.a: undefined reference to `__ctype_b' on Redhat system

    I can't help but think this bug has been fixed, and we just don't have
    the fix. Here's the problem: I'm trying to use itkDB in IC 5.0 under
    Redhat Linux. The compile goes fine, but the Cadence static lib itkDB.a
    refers to a symbol __ctype_b which glibc's libraries no longer define:
    it's apparently been abandoned in favor of __ctype_b_loc. Thus the code
    will not link.

    Any comments/suggestions/fixes?

  2. My guess is that you're using RH Enterprise Edition 3.0? I've seen some other
    internal reports of problems like this (not with ITK, but other applications)
    which are getting similar problems - in fact I think we're going to have
    a RH7.2 compatibility library shipped with IC5141 to help with this...

    Anyway, if you're using Enterprise Edition 3.0 you should be aware that
    this isn't officially supported right now - and so you may have some troubles
    (many of these have workarounds, as you'll find by looking in the archives of
    this news group). However, linking executables with libraries build under RH7.2
    on Enterprise 3.0 may be one step too far (I've not tried it, I'm afraid because
    I don't have a machine with that OS in our office yet).
