Yep, I'm afraid Philipp's right. The symlink to /usr/share/zoneinfo sounded
promising, but I replaced the symlink in /etc with the file that it was linking
to, and the result is the same.
It may be related to the fact that hwclock doesn't work:
craig@gallifrey 11:07 ~ > /sbin/hwclock --debug
hwclock: Open of /dev/misc/rtc failed, errno=2: No such file or directory.
No usable clock interface found.
Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.

But if that's really true, then how can the clock be set at all?
So what I think I'm getting out of this is that it's probably worth doing at
least a little digging to find out what the deal is. If I find any significant
results, I'll post to the list.
