But this is not cool.  There might be systems out there that have
getpeerucred() but not <ucred.h>, and this coding would cause a compile
failure (even if they actually wouldn't be trying to use getpeerucred()
because they have some other way to do it).  You need an explicit
configure probe for the header file too, I think.

Also, what is the rationale for putting this before the
HAVE_STRUCT_CMSGCRED case instead of after?  Again, that seems like it
could cause unexpected behavioral changes on platforms that work fine
now (consider possibility that getpeerucred is there but broken).
