Part is a bug in the time code (I changed things recently to "fix" a g++
issue and didn't chase down all the consequences apparantly).  Part is
a bug on your part.  The uClibc time code requires at least the timezone
abbreviation _and_ the offset.  Since it doesn't use the zoneinfo data,
it has no way of knowing what offset to use for EST.

I'll try to fix the uClibc bug today.
