closed/java/util/TimeZone/CheckTzdataVersion.sh is failing on Mac OS X because of 
an extra non-printable character being extracted by the strings command.
Masayoshi Okutsu:

I believe it's a bug of the strings command which is supposed to check only printable characters. If isprint(c) is true, iscntrl(c) has to be false in the POSIX standard. (Same for their wchar_t version.)

EVALUATION We need to make sure that we extract the BUILD_TZ_VERSION correctly.
