lib: fix multiple strlcpy definition

Some C libraries, like uClibc and musl, provide BSD compatible
strlcpy(). Add check_strlcpy() to configure, and avoid defining strlcpy
and strlcat when the C library provides them.

This fixes the following static link error with uClibc-ng:

.../sysroot/usr/lib/libc.a(strlcpy.os): In function `strlcpy':
strlcpy.c:(.text+0x0): multiple definition of `strlcpy'
../lib/libutil.a(utils.o):utils.c:(.text+0x1ddc): first defined here
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
