Actually, it is probably the case that it isn't being exported by the
cygwin1.dll, which means the function isn't in the c import library. 
The function may have been recently added to newlib, so that is why
you are picking it up.  What is necessary is to actually tell the
cygwin1.dll to exort the new symbols.  I'll take a look at it today
and see what is necessary to export it.  You could probably help the
situation by referencing what *standards* isblank() is part of and
why it should be included in the cygwin1.dll.
