I guess Fabrice will have to figure this out.  I'm puzzled how it
worked for him a year ago.

Please install the 1st and the 3rd of these 3.  I'm about to start a
discussion regarding the 2nd one.

How about using _get_tzname to set up our own private array akin to
tzname[]?  Here's the plan:

 . in src/s/ms-w32.h, "#define tzname msvc_tzname" (for _MSC_VER >= 1400)

 . in w32.c:sys_localtime, when _MSC_VER >= 1400, call _get_tzname
   twice to populate tzname[] with 2 values as expected

 . reinstate HAVE_TZNAME for MSVC

Does this work, i.e. link without errors?

Thanks.
