Hi all

Glibc-2.1.3 compiles and tests cleanly but won't install.  Install exits
when it reaches the timezone stuff.  I'm running redhat 5.2, which is
glibc-2.0.7.  I have the complete output from compile, test and install
and I am including the last part of install.  I did check the test file
and found that africa did not seem to be tested, which is where the bomb
lies.  I used the 2.4.3 book.

make  -C timezone subdir_install
