It looks like they just removed the dependency rather than a replacement.

xrdb supports  
  -cpp filename       preprocessor to use [/usr/bin/cpp]
 so a smaller replacement is a possibilty here, tcc or mcpp 

The other option is to just ensure that resources do not need preprocessing.  
I'm not sure if that is viable but isn't xrdb simply a thing that happens at 
x startup?  Once into X everything is ok, right?
