Fixed in `master' thanks to Gnulib.

In 1.8, not a fix but an improvement:

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guile.git/commit/?id=1011599792302b356195663a3efd68a234c11f69

We could use `AC_LIBOBJ' et al. to provide a real fix, though...

Thanks,
Ludo'.

On Tru64 5.1b, we get:

#v+
FAIL: strftime: C99 %z format: GMT
FAIL: strftime: C99 %z format: EST+5
#v-

More precisely:

#v+
(putenv "TZ=GMT+0")
(tzset)
(let ((tm (localtime 86400)))
(strftime "%z" tm))
=> "GMT"
#v-

and:

#v+
(putenv "TZ=EST+5")
(tzset)
(let ((tm (localtime 86400)))
(strftime "%z" tm))
=> "EST"
#v-

The feature test in `time.test' goes like this:

#v+
(strftime "%z" (gmtime 0))
=> "EST"
#v-

Hi,

`strftime' was reported to be broken on AIX:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.lisp.guile.bugs/3796

It is also said to be broken on Solaris.

Gnulib has an `strftime' module, which we should use in HEAD and borrow in 1.8.

Thanks,
Ludovic.
