Thanks for this new information. However, i am aware of smartcard
environments without mktime().
Who needs mktime to convert an Z-zone Generalizedtime or UTCTime to
some binary value?
The example that I have shown used gmtime, this is certainly not
a complex function, it is just a small real thing.

As the author of the crypto toolkit that runs on a larger range of embedded
systems than any other , I can state that this point is invalid. I've got
code running on systems without a clock that nevertheless still have
mktime() (OK, so you can't actually check the date against anything once
you've read it, but you can at least read it). I've never encountered a
system where reading a UTCTime is a problem.
 Until someone else proves otherwise :-).
