I've discovered the same problem, although my investigation showed that the 
correct fix is to include host= target= AND build= in the configure 
commandline. Without the build= option, you'll see the configure output 
display a warning message. During the install phase, it appears glibc does 
not think your build system is the same as the host, therefore does not run 
"zic" (Zone Information Compiler) - thus the timezones are not installed.

adding the build= option to the configure commandline removed the warning, 
and correctly installed the timezone files for me.
