Sure: the date.c program (which is part of the tz code) links to the
strftime etc. functions defined by the other modules.  So you can
think of date.c as a "sample program".

It should work either way.  I've never used either system, though, so
I can't say for sure.  I can confirm that it works well under both
GNU/Linux and Solaris.
