The OpenBSD getrusage(2) manpage says that the getrusage() function
call appeared in 4.2BSD. Seventh Edition Unix doesn't have it (but
doesn't have <sys/time.h> either). HP-UX 10.20 and Solaris 2.6 both
have it, so I'm pretty sure all the UNIX-like systems we support have
it. But POSIX marks it as an XSI extension, so I think we should not
rely on it.
