Remove unused localtime makefile variables

The makefile variables localtime and inst_localtime-file are unused, being 
left over from the removed support for glibc installing timezone files.  I 
propose this patch to remove them.  Tested x86_64.

	* Makeconfig (localtime): Remove variable.
	(inst_localtime-file): Likewise.
