Thanks for letting me know about this.  Here's a draft description
of ICU's use of tz; please let me know of any problems.

<li><a href="">International Components for
Unicode (ICU)</a> contains a C/C++ library for internationalization that
has a compiler from <samp>tz</samp> source into an ICU-specific format.
ICU is freely available under a BSD-style license.</li>

By the way do you know about Joda Time?  Perhaps you could use it in
the Java side of ICU.  Here's what I was planning to add for it:

<li><a href="">Joda Time - Java date
and time API</a> contains a class
<code></code> that compiles
<code>tz</code> source into a Joda-specific binary format. Joda Time
is freely available under a BSD-style license.</li>
