A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Look, we all know that there's no magic bullet in programming. Different tools do different parts of the job well, others … not so much.
Fortunately, there are two quite simple workarounds for not having strlcpy in libc:
* add -lbsd to your GCC command line.
* #define strlcpy(d,n,s) snprintf((d),(n),"%s",(s))
Which of these is more efficient is left as an exercise to the reader. :-P
