I think we are talking wchar_t string library (wcscpy and friends).
Is this right?

If so, lib/libc/string or lib/libc/wstring seems to be natural place
for me. Of course, locale/codeset dependent library should not go there.

lib/libc/locale or lib/libc/wctype is not good choice, because
these implies locale/codeset/LC_CTYPE related place.

Probably lib/libc/stdio.
