I suspect that the query was more concerned with which version of the
database is installed (what sources the compiled zoneinfo files came
from), rather than which versions of the tools, which, while interesting,
isn't likely to be of much concern to most people (as long as they
work, who cares, if they don't work, replace them with the latest version,
try again, if that fixed it, who cares what version was there previously,
if it didn't, time for e-mail to the list...)
