As I stated  in by  response  to Bob,  the  instead  of  strftime()  and
mktime(), we could use  nl_ascxtime() and gmtime2() which are in current
X/OPEN systems.  (Gmtime2() is a static routine and does not account for
local time but but is still "existing" art.  I have been tempted to post
it, but I reverse engineered it directly from the AT&T gmtime() code.)
