meanwhile I have recompiled and reinstalled glibc-2.2.5, using the above
patch (as well as the symlink fix to zic.c). As to be expected everything
has worked fine, so I would suggest that you submit it to bug-glibc.
NB: I hadn't realized that "the entries in systemv were all changed from
Zone to Link lines"; this obviously makes this patch necessary.
