The ChangeLog entry for the addition says "Import AC_SYS_LARGEFILE

don't know where to find copies of that file.

It's from gnulib, which in turn got it from coreutils.

Gnulib still has m4/largefile.m4, although now it's merely a copy of what's in (the next version of) Autoconf. That is, people use the Gnulib largefile.m4 because they don't want to wait for the next release of Autoconf to come out.
