While we are on this, here are 2 other todo items related to djtz*.zip 
that I never got to take care of:

  - make zoneinfo/src/makefile produce formatted man pages in 
    %DJDIR%/share/man (this probably requires some intelligent detection 
    of whether Groff is installed);

  - zoneinfo/src/makefile runs `yearistype', a shell script as part of its 
    thing, and thus requires Bash (and a few other utilities invoked by 
    the script) to be installed.  It would be nice to be able to build 
    zoneinfo files without Bash and the additional programs, since the 
    rest of the library build doesn't require any add-ons.  The script is 
    quite simple, so perhaps it's not too hard to eliminate the need for 
    it.

Perhaps someone will have enough time and motivation to do something 
about these 2 issues before v2.04 hits the Web sites.

TIA
