Dear Debian/Ubuntu experts,

For the second time users of my BioC package reported problems when 
trying to compile it on Debian/Ubuntu.

The error is always the same: "'wcstombs' was not declared in this 
scope", see:

Since I have no problems compiling my package on OpenSUSE11.1, MacOS X 
and WinXP, I assume that maybe some development package may not be 

Do you know what might be the reason for the compilation error on 
Which development headers/packages (glibc-headers, glibc-kernheaders??) 
need to be installed on Debian/Ubuntu?

Best regards
