Alternatively, given the XXX comment, why not delete the local copies
of str{cpy,len}() and just usr the library versions?  The original
reason appears to be to avoid the possibility that str{cpy,len}() are
not re-entrant.  The FreeBSD ones _are_ re-entrant and it doesn't seem
likely that we will re-write them not to be re-entrant.
