Subject: %l missing in strftime()

Hi there-

Long time fan, first time caller…  :-)

I noticed that, despite the man page’s claim, %l (that’s ell) is not implemented in strftime().  This patch should do the job.

diff --git a/src/time/strftime.c b/src/time/strftime.c

                width = 3;

+               else if (val > 12) val -= 12;
+               goto number;
        case 'm':
                val = tm->tm_mon+1;
                goto number;

Keep up the great work!
