GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin, NS apple-appkit-1038.36) of
2013-03-13 on bob.porkrind.org

> C-h f with-silent-modifications

It gives me this info:

| with-silent-modifications is a Lisp macro in `subr.el'.
| (with-silent-modifications &rest BODY)
| Execute BODY, pretending it does not modify the buffer.
| If BODY performs real modifications to the buffer's text, other

I have a subr.elc and subr.el.gz, and it is in there.

Just for clarification: I am using emacs from emacsformacosx.com on
Mountai Lion.
