I think the latter, unless you want to use Java
Jonathan Lennox proposed a C API in
I vaguely recall that something got implemented; perhaps
you can consult the archive of the tz mailing list.

GNU/Linux (i.e., glibc) and tzcode are both reasonable. Neither is
bug-free. GNU/Linux currently has some problems with negative time
stamps; tzcode with large 64-bit time_t values -- choose your poison.
GNU/Linux is LPGLed and is probably more widely used; tzcode is public
