[tz] zone file format very strict

I noticed that the last line of a zone file like
# Zone NAME STDOFF RULES FORMAT [UNTIL]
Zone Asia/Kabul 4:36:48 - LMT 1890
4:00 - +04 1945
4:30 - +0430
does not suffer a trailing TAB character, behind the +0430
I think the zone file compiling mechanism could be a bit more tolerant
of trailing white space.
The issue came about because I employ a zone file generator utility,
which accidentally created
such trailing tabs in some cases.
I fixed my generator, but wanted to mention this anyway.
