If HAVE_TZNAME means what I think it does, then the Windows port
should define it.  The problem in this case is that the declaration
in strftime.c conflicts with the one in <time.h> when built with
MingW32, because of the fact that tzname[] actually resides within a
shared library, so its method of dereferencing is not normal.
