Simply make a link /etc/localtime to a correct file in /usr/share/zoneinfo.
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 23 Sep 29 19:23 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/EET
to get EET (East European Time). The Amiga clock has to be in GMT.
You can also set your timezone to GMT which will give you the same time
on both sides (just set the Amiga clock to your real time).
