Please help me to duplicate the problem.  I simply can't.

t-gettime.c tests the back and forth conversion between gmtime(3) and
timegm(3).  From my understanding the locale won't matter.  The input is
a time_t which is a specific way to describe the number of seconds since
Epoch.  That number should be returned by timegm.

The problem seems to be that you are using the timegm emulation in
jnlib/mischelp.c which uses mktime and a TZ=UTC.  To me this seems to be
correct interpretation of POSIX.  Only localtime(3) should take TAI or
any other conversion into acount.

What is your environment?  echo "$TZ"; zdump UTC 
What OS and libc are you using?
Is HAVE_TIMEGM defined in your config.h?
