Thanks for the bug report.  Here's an untested patch to
glibc/timezone/Makefile to fix that timing problem.  (Your symlink fix
to zic.c is also welcome, but that's a separate problem.)

Can you please test this patch?  If it works for you, we can submit it
to bug-glibc as "the consensus of the tz experts" (all 2 of us :-).

	* timezone/Makefile (tzbases): Move systemv from here...
	(tzlinks): to here, since the entries in systemv were all changed
	from Zone to Link lines in tz-2001a.
