It's called in mfe.cxx via cm_synchronize:
/* set time from server */
This was for old VxWorks systems which had no ntp/crond. Was asked for by Pierre long time ago. I don't use it
(have no VxWorks). We can either remove it completely, or remove just the MacOSX part and just exit the program
if called with an error message "not implemented on this OS".
