That sounds like a mistake; TM_GMTOFF should not be defined in
private.h, since it's a property of struct tm, a public interface,
rather than something private to the tz code.

The usual way to handle this problem is to have a separate
'configure' script that determines which TM_GMTOFF is
appropriate for the current system.  We could head in that
direction if there's interest, though it would complicate
building a bit.
