I don't have a TZ variable set, so that explains the output. TZ=CEST didn't work, but TZ=CEST-2 did the trick. This is quite a bummer, though. I use musl to create static binaries for Linux, and every glibc-based distribution (i.e. the vast majority) uses /etc/localtime rather than the TZ variable. :-( Thanks for the clarification. Yoran
