zoneinfo package under IRIX?

I've been writing some code to convert between timezones on Linux, using
zoneinfo (compiling with -lz)

Basically, I create a struct tm, populate it with user entered data, then

t = mktime(tm);


newtm = localtime(&t);

/* then later...*/


newtm = localtime(&t);

I'm compiling with cc, linking in (-lz -L/usr/local/lib) the libz.a, which
compiles cleanly under IRIX 5.3.

This code works *perfectly* under Linux (redhat 2.0.18).  Am I missing
something about the zoneinfo package?

Thanks in advance,
