Thanks, I did that in Gnulib and propagated the result into Emacs master (see attached patch).

And then I got the following in the output of ./configure:

   checking whether localtime loops forever near extrema... ./configure: line 
30561: 35760 Alarm clock             TZ=QQQ0 ./conftest$EXEEXT

Thanks for mentioning that; I attempted to suppress the "Alarm clock" stuff in the attached patch too.

I will try to find the exact boundary of the hang again.  And the hang
is timezone-dependent, so that complicates things too.

I think we should be OK here, as the test case uses UTC so that it is reproducible. The use of UTC could explain why the abovementioned numeric change was needed.
