This patch brings possibility to switch from default build-in timezone to another timezone source - typically to OS timezone location.


It was discussed few weeks ago:
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2007-03/msg00784.php

AFAIR, the conclusion of that discussion was we didn't want it.

I'm sorry, but I don't think that the thread has clear conclusion.

I certainly don't see the point of the implementation as you have it
--- it adds a great deal of unnecessary infrastructure compared to just
installing a symlink at share/postgresql/timezone.

The point of my solution is that all packagers who interested in use only configure switch instead of playing with link integration. In this case, Packager also must cleanup build-in timezones after make install. This is not only about add one line into spec file.

There is also big risk that new version of package which will delivery timezones can replace system file zone information and it damages a system.

I discussed it with gatekeepers which are responsible for patch preparation and they afraid about future problems with link solution (based on experience with another sw integration).
