Subject: _tzname not defined in libc?

When attempting to upgrade to -current today, I ran into a problem with
libc. Once libc was built and the shared library installed, anything
that used it complained:
/usr/lib/libc.so.12: Undefined symbol "_tzname" (reloc type = 6, symnum
a nm of libc.so.12.49 (just installed) has:
0006fbdc D tzname
So obviously there is some _tzname/tzname mismatch somewhere.
namespace.h has "#define tzname _tzname" (only if __weak_alias is
defined), and localtime.c includes namespace.h and also has
"__weak_alias(tzname,_tzname);" and then later "__aconst char *
tzname". What exactly does the __weak_alias stuff do, and why is it
there? Anyone else seeing this problem?
