Re: [MiNT] where to fetch local time

I just noticed that the library function settimeofday (MINTLIB
seems to build it as a wrapper to Tsettimeofday) ends up altering
localtime, instead of UTC.

For instance, every time K9 receives an NTP packet (NTP runs in
UTC), it changes localtime to match UTC, instead of adjusting
the kernel's UTC reference and leaving localtime alone.
