I don't have any #include_next <ctype.h> on my systems.  I suspect you
have the wrong packages installed or have overwritten something.  What
is the output from 'dpkg -l' and 'dpkg -S /usr/include/ctype.h' and
the entire contents of /usr/include/ctype.h?

<linux/ctype.h> is only for use by the kernel and its modules.  Don't
use it.
