At this point, it would be a good idea to mark all AC_FUNC_* macros that

Except maybe AC_FUNC_MALLOC and AC_FUNC_REALLOC, because the replacement
code for them is so trivial that anyone can make it up himself.
The affected macros are:
If you're interested in this, you're likely using gnulib anyway nowadays.

I don't think anyone knows even how to use these, i.e. where to get the
replacement (I think it was meant to be taken from libit...). At this
point using gnulib is better.

This one should have been made obsolescent already, shouldn't it?
(Given the gnulib module is).

This maybe falls in the same group as AC_FUNC_MALLOC/AC_FUNC_REALLOC.
This one I would leave in too, obstacks are pretty self contained and I
think it is the most likely used in the wild.
