I think I misremeber having replied to your patch.  Anyway, my
thoughts were that we tend to prefer platform-independent patches
whenever possible; your patch is conditionalized on __GLIBC__, which
is not really the direction we want to go in.

Also, are you sure that this isn't a configuration issue related to
how you have set up the chroot environment?  The setup of chroot
environments is a highly platform-specific thing.  I suspect at the
very least you may want to include the timezone configuration files in
the chroot environment.

(Yes, your OS package system probably should handle some of this.)
