It's been there since release 1.0, needed to make 64 integers usable
in a portable way. The macro is defined in acsite.m4 and have been 
copied from postgresql 7.3.4. It helps defining int64 to 'long' or
'long long' (unavailable on some systems).
You error message suggests to me the acsite.m4 file has not been
parsed by autoconf when producing 'configure' (there should be no
PGAC_TYPE.. call in the 'configure' script itself).

I'm using GNU Autoconf 2.57 with success. Note that autoconf reads
both aclocal.m4 and acsite.m4. I did not use aclocal.m4 because that
is currently generated by 'aclocal'. Maybe Fernando can help
with these auto* tools.
