Why would --with-zoneinfo want to use a symlink though? Shouldn't it just

directly why not do it directly?

I sent patch which hardwire path into postgres couple of months ago. There is discussion:

with conclusion do it as a symlink... However I still convinced that hardwired solution invoke less problems then symlink solution.
