Improve timezone mapping for AIX platform

Hi Jonathan,

The AIX specific code looks OK to me. But I'd suggest the code be moved 
to getPlatformTimeZoneID() for AIX, which just returns NULL currently. 
Also there's a function for producing a fallback ID in "GMT±hh:mm", 
getGMTOffsetID() which can be called in tzerr.
