BSD/OS 4.2, but it's obsolete and thus easily ignored.  But isn't that
the main point of having fseeko and ftello in gnulib?  If not, then
there doesn't seem to be any reason for having the messy code in fseeko
that grubs around in the FILE structure so as to be able to call lseek;
just call the native fseek[o] and be done with it.
