fileutils uses intrnal strftime and not glibc's one

ls in fileutils can't handle LC_TIME because it uses its own strftime
instead of glibc's. Looking at configure it looks like glibc strftime isn't
accepted because it can't handle the %f format (part of POSIX 2 it says)
since from what i've seen the only component in fileutils that needs
strftime is ls and it doesn't use the %f it should be possible to compile
with glibc's strftime.
Not really a big deal but it should be nice to have ls displaying dates
in the users locale.
fileutils in rawhide uses its internal strftime() only on systems that don't
