Where do we need it? It may make more sense to just use grub_stpcpy in
these places.

Calls to a stpcpy appear a couple times in:

- util/grub-fstest.c
- util/grub-probe.c
- util/getroot.c        [__linux__]

I agree that using grub_stpcpy is fine there.  The benefit of importing
gnulib's stpcpy is that it solves current calls to stpcpy, as well as
the future ones (that might be added to GRUB).

There are also calls to stpcpy in:

- grub-core/lib/libgcrypt/cipher/pubkey.c
- grub-core/lib/libgcrypt/cipher/dsa.c

but they do not cause any problem (these files are not compiled afaics).
