At least on my RELENG_4 box, getresuid() does seem to exist (although its
man page does not).  MFC'ing it to RELENG_3 probably shouldn't be too much
trouble, though--it's a new interface to the same old information.

Hmm.  There's a libc_3.so.3 in compat3x, however, I haven't really
followed the whole __stderrp mess, so can't say whether that's useful or
not :-).
