It would appear that Mac OS X's copy of string.h is invalid.
It declares strcpy as
char *strcpy(char *, const char *);
But the C standard declares it as
char *strcpy(char * restrict, const char * restrict);
These two types are actually incompatible with each other according to the C standard, and a function that is declared more than once in different translation units with different declarations is considered undefined behavior. Thus, any correctly conforming C library will cause any code that includes string.h to be undefined.
