Thanks, that problem is fixed.

I still am seeing the problem with the 'timezone' variable in date.c.

I looked into it a little.  FreeBSD's time.h does not define timezone 
as a variable.  It defines it as a function: char *timezone(int, int).
Seconds offset from UTC are contained in struct tm.tm_gmtoff.
