This was a bug in GNU Autoconf, fixed upstream and in Debian's
autoconf/2.61-7, see the chandelog for details.  You should regenerate
owfs' build system or circumvent the test with 
`./configure ac_cv_func_working_mktime=yes'.

With 2.61-8 on a Debian testing machine:

cat > configure.ac <<'EOF'

$ autoreconf
$ time ./configure
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking for working mktime... yes
configure: creating ./config.status
