I would suggest you use the version from glibc.  Why duplicate the
work?  I have to track the tz mailing lists and I normally update the
glibc sources in the next 24 hours after I got the announcement of a
new version.  Beside this, the tzcode in glibc is often updated before
the changes get into the official version.

I don't know whether it makes sense to distribute this part of glibc
in a separate package.  I don't think so but you'll know better.
