After playing around:
gcc-2.8.1 seems to miscompile not only the tzset, but linuxthreads
won't pass a make check either.
After trying out the latest alpha egcs compiler, everything passes make
check. [I don't know how much of this is my system, or oddities in
Now to find out if I can find/get patches/fix gdb-4.17 so that it
works with the linuxthreads stuff in 2.0.95.
Thanks for the pointers,
