I don't know why it would be trying to import zoneinfo since it
doesn't seem to be a code directory, it just contains various data for
timezone stuff. I'm CC'ing matplotlib-devel since that's really a
matplotlib problem and not a Python or NumPy one.
P.S. please don't top-post replies, it makes things hard to follow.
