I thought I ran into a version of strptime on www.snippets.org, I'll
check. We should just ditch
the calls to snprintf. I believe those are from a patch someone sent

  I was trying to build this on Windows and seems that the function 
strptime is not available on windows (MSVC++).  I am looking into 
porting some existing c code in Mapserver to make this function 
available on Windows.

  On the same subjet the function snprintf is also not avialable for 
Windows causing problems during build time.
