While I'm not sure that the functionality is needed (see some other
replies), one comment on the code:

"TZDIR" is provided in "tzfile.h" - you don't need to add this yourself.
In general with user accessable systemy type files, the location of

probably should file a PR saying there's no way to find the name of
such-and-such directory or file.
