Incorrect time stamp on uploaded files

At my place of employment, we have a Linux (Suse 9.1) Server and an Internet (Suse 9.1) Server.
The problem I am trying to resolve is the time stamp on files uploaded to our server using ftp. The time stamp on files uploaded show the year 2004 and a date and time that is way off the actual date and time.

I have verified that the hardware clock on both servers is correct and have syncronized system time on both servers respectively using
hwclock --hctosys

I also looked at the /etc/sysconfig/clock file for any errors.
Now, based on my very limited knowledge of Linux, it appears to look fine, but I honestly do not know.
Here is what is in this file (on both servers):

HWCLOCK="--local time"

What do I need to do next?

Thank you.

Well it's not the same issue but similar. Today I d/l'd the gd library from and when I tar -xvf all the files show a timestamp with 2004's date.
Then I try to ./configure and I get this error.
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock
Still looking for a solution.
