The resources module (and the system header from which it's populated) does not implement RLIMIT_RSS on that platform. In fact RLIMIT_RSS is a non-POSIX extension and should probably be checked for in general.

Indeed. The only purpose of this test is to check whether RLIMIT_AS is really an alias of RLIMIT_RSS. If RLIMIT_RSS does not exist, it certainly isn't.
