It sounds like perhaps you missed the "echo cross-compiling no" line 
when you did your glibc installation.  This is the usual cause of the 
zoneinfo stuff not being installed.  Try just recompiling glibc again - 
it should properly detect that you're not making a cross-compiler this time.


I've heard it said that there are two types of *NIX admins, those that
have done something EXTREMELY stupid while logged in as root, and
those that WILL do something extremely stupid while logged in as root.
