	In file timezone/zdump.c on line 266 is code:
                (void) fprintf(stderr, _("%s: Error writing standard output "),
                (void) perror(_("standard output"));
                (void) exit(EXIT_FAILURE);

	The result of this code will be:
	"xxxx: Error writing standard output standard output: xxxxx"

	I suggest this change:
                (void) fprintf(stderr, _("%s: Error writing "),
                (void) perror(_("standard output"));
                (void) exit(EXIT_FAILURE);

        On line 768 of timezone/zic.c is code:

        return (errnum > 0 && errnum <= sys_nerr) ?
                sys_errlist[errnum] : "Unknown system error";

        Message "Unknown system error" is not marked for translation.
	Please mark it.

        In file timezone/zic.c on line 433 in function warning(string) is:

                cp = ecpyalloc("warning: ");

        If this function is called output may be:

        warning: tento soubor neexistuje

        It is translated partially. Please, mark this message for translation.

Thank you
