The current code:

    #if !defined (HAVE_STRUCT_TM_TM_ZONE)
        /* it seems the only way to tell non-GNU versions of strftime what
           zone to use (for the %Z format) is to set TZ in the
           environment.  interrupts and thread switching must be deferred
           until TZ is restored.  */
        char **oldenv = NULL;
        SCM zone_spec = SCM_SIMPLE_VECTOR_REF (stime, 10);
        int have_zone = 0;

        if (scm_is_true (zone_spec) && scm_c_string_length (zone_spec) > 0)
        /* it's not required that the TZ setting be correct, just that
           it has the right name.  so try something like TZ=EST0.
           using only TZ=EST would be simpler but it doesn't work on
           some OSs, e.g., Solaris.  */
        SCM zone =
          scm_string_append (scm_list_2 (zone_spec,
                                         scm_from_locale_string ("0")));

        have_zone = 1;
        oldenv = setzone (zone, SCM_ARG2, FUNC_NAME);

You said that appending the 0 confuses MinGW, so you skip this section
and the corresponding one after the nstrftime.  But you're skipping the
setzone too, so I don't see how the strftime tests would work.

According to POSIX, our TZ value is valid:

What is the MinGW restriction?  You mention it in the comment but I
don't understand the comment.
