It was documented in the GCC 4.7 release notes


but was apparently forgotten for the regular docs. It's not even in
4.9.2, but it seems they just fixed it, since at least -foptimize-strlen
is now documented:


However, the above release notes also say that it will only switch
functions "for hosted compilations where stpcpy is available in the
runtime and headers provide its prototype", so the prototype alone
should not be enough. Why does GCC think that your runtime provides
stpcpy when it does not?
