Not changing formats .. the easy fix is to make some changes to timestamp()
in util.c:

319     sprintf(s, "%d %3s %4d %d:%.2d",
320             tms->tm_mday,
321             months[tms->tm_mon],
322             tms->tm_year + 1900,
323             tms->tm_hour,
324             tms->tm_min);

That replacement for lines 319 through 324 would fix the problem.  The only
user of timestamp() in the source is the stuff in log.c (which would make it
a nice candidate for moving out of util.c and into log.c).
