Looks like you might also want to use horology-no-DST-before-1970.out.

Mumble.  The memcmp fix was all from well-tested parts, but I don't
think we have a canned test for strtol breakage available.  Also,
I believe that the SunOS strtol lossage has been known and tolerated
in previous Postgres releases.  Since it's not a regression, I'm going
to change sides and vote with Peter: let's not fix this one now.
