Convert rtems_clock_time_value to UTC (ascii)

My measurement data has an RTEMS timestamp in seconds,microseconds 
(rtems_clock_time_value). How can I convert this value later to 
human-readable UTC.
Obviously gmtime() cannot be used, because the RTEMS value has an offset 
to UNIX-style time_t.

Is there a constant #define'ed, which should be added to get a UNIX time_t ?

Thanks & regards,
