| Why is the file "yearistype.sh" in tzdata*.tar.gz instead of tzcode*.tar.gz
| (where it is used)?
Because it is effectively data, it is used by the tzdata files, and changes
in sync with those.
| What is the purpose of copying "yearistype.sh" to "yearistype" during make?
The data files want something called yearistype not yearistype.sh - the
original has the .sh because it is written as a sh script. It could be
re-written in C, perl, python, ruby, .... The "executable" still needs to
be yearistype but there could be different implementations of that in
