This is from the latest fileutils, which are also maintained by
#if !defined (HAVE_BCOPY) && defined (HAVE_MEMCPY) && !defined (bcopy)
# define bcopy(from, to, len) memcpy ((to), (from), (len))
(Or define it the other way round, as needed)
bcopy() does even more than memcpy(), in most implementations it can
copy overlapping strings, which memcpy() cannot. The ANSI C function
for that is memmove().
