Subject: ctime bug?

Hi,

    Consider the following program:
    
#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>

int main ()
{
   time_t clock;

   clock = time((time_t *) NULL);
   puts((char *) ctime(&clock));
   return 0;
}

    When compiled under BCC, it gives the same time as DOS.  However, when
compiled under gcc (from 1.11 maint4), it reports a time that is one hour
earlier.  Is this a bug?
