There's a lot, lot of freeware in bff (smit-installable) format (AIX 4.3.3). There are almost always up-to-date, if not ask the guy.

No, I do not know if sudo is available in a precompiled format for AIX 4.3.3.  Yes, sudo compiles and installs perfectly under AIX 4.3.3 - I've done it a number of times.
The trick is getting a compiler.  You could:
- Buy a single user C license from IBM for ~$500 US
- Download a precompiled version of gcc (Gnu CC) for AIX and then compile sudo yourself
- Find a computer at your site that is running AIX 4.3.3 that already has a compiler, compile sudo, then lift the two binaries and transfer them to your system(s) of

Good luck - it's well worth the effort to get sudo where you want to use it.
