Hi Ben,

Looking more closely, ‘system_timezone_find’ first tries to see if
/etc/localtime is a symlink and if yes reads its target (but it’s never
a symlink, AFAIK), and later on tries to compare /etc/localtime to files

Problem is:

  #define SYSTEM_ZONEINFODIR "/usr/share/zoneinfo"

So probably, if you substitute “/usr/” with the prefix of the ‘tzdata’
package, it’ll work much better.  :-)

Let me know how it goes!
