Oh Solaris has the same issue?

Sorry, I thought your earlier messages said so; if not then please ignore my noise about Solaris.

So you mean warn, rather than fail or ignore in this case?

This depends on whether the failure is due to gnulib (in which case we should fail, and should fix the gnulib bug) or in the C library (in which case we should just warn). If on Darwin the shell command

TZ='NZST-12NZDT,M9.5.0,M4.1.0/3' date -r0

outputs the string "Thu Jan 1 12:00:00 NZST 1970", then the C library is clearly buggy. If not, we should investigate further. The above example assumes Darwin 'date', not GNU date, so it uses the -r0 option; GNU date would have address@hidden instead.
