unfortunately, no. first, as isspace() wants int, this is equivalent
to (int)(unsigned int)(char)(-33) == -33

correct solution would be 'isspace ((unsigned char) *s), but i've
found out that it doesn't work, too! newlib's defining _ctype_ as
char[257], but of those 257 chars only 129 are initialized.

i'm still failing to produce a "full" patch to implement [-128,256]
range, and if i can't find a reason why it's not working, i'd post an
"intermediate" one.

i'm trying to define
(dllexport) _ctype_=_ctype_b + 127;

but, for some reason it doesn't work. i suspect it has somthing to do
with relocation of data exported from dll, but to be sure, i have to
put my hands a bit deeper into assembled code.
