A quick comparison shows me how it behaves (compared to ours) - and it
seems tzsetwall() is useless there also.  This means my current patch
would do the wrong thing if someone called tzsetwall() before a
time function with TZ set.  I think I see a fix; if we set lcl_is_set
to the value "1" after the return from tzsetwall() in tzset() then our 
caching will prevent future calls to getenv() unless someone changes 
the environment (or calls tzsetwall()) - same behavior.

mktime() and friends behavior look the same (probably slow).  

I wrote a much faster version for an early alpha of 2.00 (non iterative)
but it didn't do timezones, DST or leap seconds.  Do you want accurate
and compatible or fast? :-P  We went with standard code.
