prototypes for nested functions

For nested functions I get e.g. this warning:
programs/ld-ctype.c:2880: warning: no previous prototype for `set_default'

The GCC manual suggests to use auto to shut up GCC.

What do you think of the appended patch?  Shall I send a similar
version for all nested functions to shut up GCC?
