This fixes the situtation where, if /usr/share/zoneinfo was
inaccessible/didn't otherwise exist, howard-hinnant-date would
download and drop a ~/Downloads/tzdata directory containing some
timezone information from IANA [1]. To avoid this, we make use of the
tzdata's zoneinfo, preventing the dropping of random directories and
files.

(cherry picked from commit 2505796)

This fixes a bug which breaks the clock module. See
Alexays/Waybar#566.
