This was added with:

   revision 1.42
   date: 1999/12/30 15:51:35;  author: eeh;  state: Exp;  lines: +2 -1
   Add dtime_t for on-disk time_t so we can fix the Y2038 problem.

and then never used.  I can't see any reason to keep it either - I think
all on-disk representations used fixed-size integers like uint32_t or
uint64_t for times.  I'll remove it soonish unless someone else comes up
with a good reason not to.
