Agreed.  A 'timezone' macro will expand as a structure member, while a
timezone variable will not.  Here is a new version that defines a
variable timezone to equal _timezone.  This seems cleaner, and removes
the need for TIMEZONE_GLOBAL.

I am still researching the stat() handling in postmaster.c.  SRA has a
porting document that I translated from Japanese (via Babelfish) which
looks very helpful.
