        The expansion of stpcpy (in glibc) causes warnings if the
        return value of strmov is not being used. Since stpcpy is
        a GNU extension and the expansion ends up using a built-in
        provided by GCC, use the compiler provided built-in directly
        when possible.

        Define a dummy MY_GNUC_PREREQ when not compiling with GCC.

      Bug#57994: Compiler flag change build error : my_redel.c
      
      Use __builtin_stpcpy only if the system supports stpcpy.
      This is necessary as in some cases a call to stpcpy will
      be emitted if the built-in can not optimized.
     @ include/m_string.h
        The expansion of stpcpy (in glibc) causes warnings if the
        return value of strmov is not being used. Since stpcpy is
        a GNU extension and the expansion ends up using a built-in
        provided by GCC, use the compiler provided built-in directly
        when possible. Nonetheless, the C library must have stpcpy
        as a call be emitted if the built-in can not optimized.

Noted in 5.1.54, 5.5.8 changelogs.

Several compilation problems were fixed.

      Although ICC identifies itself as GCC, even in version numbers,
      it does not support the stpcpy built-in.
     @ include/m_string.h
        Work around ICC. Hacks...
