secure_getenv in FreeBSD?

Hi all,

I'm investigating secure_getenv (the documentation actually) for my current
job, and am a bit surprised that this function doesn't seem to exist in
current FreeBSD (12), while it's in Linux (via glibc) and Solaris. I found
some references to "secure_getenv [...] broken" in 2013, but nothing since.

Am I missing something?


PS: no, this is not a roundabout way of asking *for* this function :-)
