There are more bugs, for example:

  996         if ((long) Start < 0)

This will cause truncation, already on MirBSD/i386 and
Linux/x32, which are ILP32 and use 64-bit time_t.

Also, by now, most OpenBSD and NetBSD® platforms, I think.

“It is inappropriate to require that a time represented as
 seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
 seconds between the referenced time and the Epoch.”
