That's because struct timeval's members are `long' not time_t.

    printf("%s\n", ctime((const time_t *) &tv.tv_sec));

Add <err.h> to your includes too and sort them in this order:

    #include <sys/time.h>
    #include <err.h>
    #include <stdio.h>

System headers first, the rest afterwards; each list sorted
alphabetically unless there is a good reason to do otherwise.

This becomes handy when there are long lists of headers as it's easy to
spot and fix duplicate includes :-)

You'd have to use strftime() and a local buffer for that.
