Looks like a failure in the header files as timegm() is not implemented
inside the MiNTLib.

So we need to implement it or remove the definition from time.h :-)

This signals a larger problem.

mktime() is slightly broken in our current implementation. And timegm.c
does exist in time/ but it isn't compiled as it references glibc's way
of doing things.

We should be able to yank in the glibc equivalents of these and then
remove the timezone files and use the external packages.

Could the definitions just be put under #ifndef __MINT__ for now so it doesn't confuse applications?
