ccd469450a (date.c: switch to reentrant {gm,local}time_r, 2019-11-28)
removes the only gmtime() call we had and moves to gmtime_r() which
doesn't have the same portability problems.

Remove the compat gmtime code since it is no longer needed, and confirm
by successfull running t4212 in FreeBSD 9.3 amd64 (the oldest I could
get a hold off).

Further work might be needed to ensure 32bit time_t systems (like FreeBSD
i386) will handle correctly the overflows tested in t4212, but that is
orthogonal to this change, and it doesn't change the current behaviour
as neither gmtime() or gmtime_r() will ever return NULL on those systems
because time_t is unsigned.

So gmtime_r() behaves differently than gmtime() on those systems in the
face of an overflowing time_t? That seems like an odd implementation
choice, but OK. If the test isn't failing, I'm just as happy to get rid
of this compat cruft.
