Why would --with-zoneinfo want to use a symlink though? Shouldn't it just
compile the binary to use the path specified directly?

AFAICS that just moves the problem to a different place, one where an
admin *can't* fix it without recompiling ...

Is there real reason why admin should do it? Timezone files are stored in defined location where "all" software expect it. If it is important to change timezone file location we could add extra command line parameter or GUC variable, but I don't see any reason for do it configurable on run-time.
