That link is to a Linux manual page for cu. You don't see it because you haven't installed the package yet, but Debian and Ubuntu both have cu packages. – Paul Tomblin Aug 19 '10 at 12:19

cu is part of the UUCP suite. So look for for a package named uucp, tuucp or taylor-uucp if cu is not available as a seperate package for your distribution.
