[tz] zdump bug?

Just noticed something that may explain my previous findings.
>From the tz variable man page:


"If characters begins with a slash, it is an absolute file name; otherwise the library looks for the file /usr/share/zoneinfo/characters."

Thus starting with a period is what throws it off?

I installed the attached first patch to try to do that. The second
attached patch silences a warning when running "make
CFLAGS='$(GCC_DEBUG_FLAGS)' GCC_INSTRUMENT=" on my platform (I updated
GCC recently).
