That was my initial impression after reading the code in
strftime.c.  But after experimenting with all the documented format
specifiers, it seems that "%h" is the only one that does not work with
the current code, so some effort has obviously already been made to
make the other specifiers that are not supported by the system
strftime function work.  In the case of "%h", it is documented as
doing the same as "%b", so we can fix that easily.
