I've just installed mingw (gcc-4.4.0) and msys (latest versions) on a
Windows 7 64bit. I've started to compile some software and I've found
that the make command recompiles ALWAYS all the files, even if they
are not unchanged. I've checked that no file has a timestamp in the
future. The only thing that could go wrong is that the date command
from the msys shell shows time in GMT timezone, but the current
windows timezone is CEST. This shouldn't be a problem if the system
converts both times to UTC. But since GMT is 2 hours less, my
suspicion is that there is some problem with managing times in
different timezones and mingw/msys "sees" all the newly created files
in the future.
The question is, is there any way to make mingw/msys work with the
same timezone that Windows ? Any hint about this problem ?
BTW, I've installed cygwin and it usesthe correct timezone.
Thanks in advance

Perhaps you could work around it this way:
if it doesn't recognize "CET" in $TZ (the old version of MSYS
that I have installed doesn't).
