In libraries/liblutil/utils.c The code for EBCDIC assumes that strftime is
broken in all EBCDIC platforms. That is not very lucky.
In servers/slapd/slapi/printmsg.c the code assumes that EBCDIC works OK and
probably that brings problems in the broken platform.

Yes, I see. The z/OS 1.2 compiler has better support for ASCII as well,
including a correct strftime. I'll have to think about how to configure this
without breaking OS/390 2.9, or maybe we don't care about supporting that old
release any more.
