I'd rather not spend time worrying about Microsoft-Windows-specific
time functions, but it does seem reasonable to remove the assumption
that gettimeofday always works, as that assumption is also false on
ancient Unix hosts.  coreutils/src/ls.c already does this (in a
slightly different context) so this sounds quite safe.  Similarly for
settimeofday.

So I installed this patch into gnulib.  It also fixes a dependency bug
(gettime and settime depend on gl_TIMESPEC being called).

2004-05-13  Paul Eggert  <address@hidden>

        * lib/gettime.c (gettime): Fall back on `time' if `gettimeofday'
        doesn't work.
        * lib/settime.c: Include <unistd.h>, for stime (on Solaris 8, anyway).
        (ENOSYS): Define if not defined.
        (settime): Fall back on stime if it exists and settimeofday fails.
        But don't bother with fallbacks if a method fails with errno == EPERM.
        * m4/gettime.m4 (gl_GETTIME): Require gl_TIMESPEC.
        Check for gettimeofday.
        * m4/settime.m4 (gl_SETTIME): Require gl_TIMESPEC.
        Check for settimeofday, stime.
