static storage class missing in stdtypes.h

Hey everyone.  I've been fighting a bug in my RS232 code the last couple days and finally realized that I had a function return declared as "Byte", which is declared as unsigned char in the stdtypes.h.  My MCU is the MC9S08QG8.

This function returned two bytes in an array, but I noticed that the second byte kept getting trashed in RAM.  What I really needed was a static char so that the RAM would be reserved for that array.

I'm a little surprised there's not a static definition in the stdtypes header file.
