Thank you both.
I've just done this for coreutils:

        * search-libs.m4 (AC_SEARCH_LIBS): Remove file/macro, now that
        this replacement is no longer needed.  Besides, this macro has
        no effect with autoconf-2.58, since `undefine' in package-supplied
        .m4 files is no longer honored.  Reported by Andreas Schwab.

        Remove now-unnecessary (and unused) files.  They also used `undefine'.
        * isc-posix.m4 (AC_ISC_POSIX): Remove file.
        * getloadavg.m4 (gl_FUNC_GETLOADAVG): Remove file.
        * prereq.m4 (jm_PREREQ): Require AC_FUNC_GETLOADAVG,
        not gl_FUNC_GETLOADAVG.
