Yes, it looks like php-src/ext/date/lib/timezonedb.h was updated to 
2017c without making the corresponding changes to 
php-src/ext/date/lib/timezonemap.h. The PHP build needs  those two files 
to be consistent with each other.

What program generates those two files, by the way? I'd like to mention 
it in tz-link.htm.
