Fwiw, printf() _does_ insert commas if you ask for it - as a GNU extension.  So
suitable for GNU/Linux and some other environments.

Write something like %'lld - the apostrophe modifier character asks for
'thousands grouping character'.

It is locale-dependent.  Some locales use '.' to separate thousands, some have
a different number of digits per group, and some don't do grouping.

To do it somewhat portably, use localeconv(), nl_langinfo() and/or strfmon(). 
The GNU libc manual explains (among other places).
