The suggested patch relies on the fact that the Makefile does special stuff
for "tzlinks" files.
Perhaps a comment should be added to the Makefile indicating that any source
file containing "Link" lines should be listed in tzlinks.

Thanks for the bug report. Here's an untested patch to
glibc/timezone/Makefile to fix that timing problem. (Your symlink fix
to zic.c is also welcome, but that's a separate problem.)
Can you please test this patch? If it works for you, we can submit it
to bug-glibc as "the consensus of the tz experts" (all 2 of us :-).

* timezone/Makefile (tzbases): Move systemv from here...
(tzlinks): to here, since the entries in systemv were all changed
from Zone to Link lines in tz-2001a.
