zoneinfo data is normally part of the tzdata package; in ELDK this is
bundled as part of the crosstool-targetcomponents package; for
footprint reasons in an embedded system not all documentation is

Please run "man tzfile" in a standard Linux system for further
information about the timezone data description files.

 The software required `Windows 95 or better', so I installed Linux.
