pkgutil says it's part of the BSD package on 10.6 at least:

$ pkgutil --file-info /usr/share/man/man3/strdup.3.gz 
volume: /
path: /usr/share/man/man3/strdup.3.gz

pkgid: com.apple.pkg.BSD
install-time: 1252978950
uid: 0
gid: 0
mode: 444

IIRC, BSD is always installed these days, but was optional sometime back...
