They are needed to get times of sunrise/sunset for your locale (but you also
need calendar-time-zone, calendar-standard-time-zone-name, and
calendar-daylight-time-zone-name).  These variables particpate in other things
as weel (lunar phase times, for example).

I will track down the problem if you can be more specific--I don't use Linux,
nor have I switched to v. 21 yet.
