The format appears to be different in SuSE 8.1 from Red Hat.
Linux libc (on RH AS 2.1 and SuSE 8.2) doesn't seem to refer to the /etc/sysconfig/clock setting, while its setup program recognizes the setting. Probably the /etc/sysconfig/clock support should be removed from Java run-time and the regression test.
