The original issue why I dived into it was because zdump on the 64
bit platforms didn't work properly. Pretty lame reason I admit, but
that's how all big things start :-)

The new code and format of the output of zic adds support for 64
bit time_t while staying compatible with applications which don't
support it. Plus general fixes.

just like I do for tzdata.
