I'm a little rusty, but IIRC (maybe this is only C++?) if you specify:

#include "header.h"

It will search the local paths first, then the system paths, whereas:

#include <header.h>

will search only system paths.

Thus in your case:

#include "time.h" // should find your application's time.h
#include <time.h> // should find the system's time.h
