Presumably meaning "depend on their own copies of tzdata" (perhaps because they have to run on OSes that don't ship with tzdata, e.g. Windows and some versions of UN*X or, at least, older releases of those versions).  ("date" depends, indirectly, on tzdata, but it doesn't ship with its own copy. :-))

If there are other reasons for maintaining their own copies of tzdata, perhaps improvements to the UN*X time APIs could help.
