I fixed the infinite loop (in lib/libc/time/localtime.c), however,
that doesn't make zdump really working.
The problem comes from 64bit time_t which introduces negative
year numbers, a much larger range and requires larger buffers
for string represantations of dates with more than 4 year digits.
These problems are addressed in a more recent version of the
timezone code and I'm working on an update.
