Uh, it does a test already by trying to compile a program referencing a
global integer variable called "timezone". Somehow a few systems will
compile that but don't really have a useful integer timezone
(RH5.0/glibc2.0 is one of those).

I'm wondering if we could change the sense of the test, to try instead
to test for the presence of a timezone field in the tm structure? That
might fix the glibc2.0 port (assuming it still has problems at v2.0.7;
haven't tested recently) but I don't know which other ports might break.

Can we experiment with this Marc?? Post-megapatch of course :)
