Patch expand_builtin_stpcpy to only expand for string constants

As mentioned by Jakub here:

expanding stpcpy can pessimize code when calculating the return value  if the src string is a runtime
expression.  This patch limits the expansion

2003-05-04  Kaveh R. Ghazi  <>

	* builtins.c (expand_builtin_stpcpy): Only expand when the length
	of the source string can be evaluated at compile-time.
