ctype_tolower ctype_tupper not find when building GCC 3.2 on mandrake 9.1 with LFS4.1

Hello every body,

I'm new on this forum and need your help.

I can't fix a compiling problem.
I'm using the LFS 4.1.
When I compile GCC 3.2 with the command of the LFS 4.1 after
20 minits I had an error because ctype_tolower and ctype_toupper functions are not found.

I can't find ctype.h nor ctype_noninline.h (where the tolwer and toupper functions are declared) on my computer.

I'm looking after a solution for one week .
And I need it because I have to learn how to create an LFS and more for my operating system course.

Does someone allready fix that problem and could explain me how to do.

Don't esitate to ask for more details.

Maybe you could post the last dozen or so lines of the output from the make process? This might make it easier to trace the problem.

I run Mandrake 9.1 as well, and I found that the default packages Mandrake installs is nowhere near what you need. Try installing all development packages, as well as any packages that contain the word gcc, glibc, devel, etc. You can do this through the Mandrake Control Center. It makes for a 3 Gig installation, but everything ends up there.

If you've done that already, disregard this. I have no idea what the problem is.
