system-config-date is doing more than just setting a time zone but
if you want to do only that then there are many such tools and one
possible is known as '/bin/cp'.  Just copy a desired zone file from
/usr/share/zoneinfo/ to /etc/localtime.  Remaining functionality of
system-config-date is covered by 'date' and 'chkconfig'.
