Have any problems been reported with 'localtime' on a 3B1 (System V).

Something seems to be wrong with my copy of 'zic'.  All of the USA entries
with daylight savings time are zeroed.  For example, 'od -c CST6CDT' is:

0000000  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0

Also, "zdump" reports all those times with a "GMT" label.  Any suggestions?
I had the same problem with the previous version and waited for the new one.

Further details:

I got errors of bad leapsecond values, so changed localtime to /dev/null.

Changes in Makefile:

TZDIR=		/usr/local/zoneinfo
LEAPSECONDS=	/dev/null
#		test -f /usr/bin/ranlib && ranlib $@
