Because tm is NULL.

Because you have overrided the time() function with your time variable.
This is a bug in *your* code not in eglibc.

Here is the fixed version of your code, and it works perfectly.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <locale.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
   char strtime[255];
   time_t t;
   struct tm *tm;
   int ret;

   setlocale(LC_ALL, "de_DE");
   t = time(NULL);
   tm = localtime(&t);
   ret = strftime(strtime, sizeof(strtime), "%c", tm);
   fprintf(stdout, "%s\n", strtime);
} // int main(int argc, char **argv...
