Interesting discovery in the C library that Cygwin uses

I made this discovery whilst building the urjtag program from its SVN trunk:
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/urjtag/urjtag/trunk/urjtag/src/tap'
 CC     tap.lo
 CC     register.lo
 CC     state.lo
 CC     chain.lo
 CC     detect.lo
detect.c: In function `find_record':

The fix, temporarily as it happens was to add to the configure script
this one: --disable-werror . The chap who suggested it also suggested
that I complain here. It was described as  an isspace() has an issue,
I won't use the term he used.

The code can be found at as it happens.

Basically the program supporter there wants the people here for Cygwin
to, ah, fix their C library. I'm not convinced that's necessary, but
which C library is used here? And what could be fixed?
