Hmm, I was AFK in this weekend so missed it, but okay,
it's better to make all port switched ASAP rather than
discussing how we should make transition.

I'll work on arc, hp300, newsmips, and news68k.
(maybe mvme68k, mvmeppc, prep could switch easily)

I always wondered how we could update this date ;-)
but we should note what date it means...

It's hard to see "21 = 1991 - POSIX_BASE_YEAR" and
"186=31+28+31+30+31+30+5(leap years since 1970)" etc.
and some ports (including one written by me) misuse "186" ;-)
