I have learned that upgrading to FreeBSD 5.5 or 6.2 will install the  
necessary patches to the for the zone info. I have also heard that:  
If you don't want to or can not upgrade, then installing misc/ 
zoneinfo port and rerun tzsetup will also correct the issue. I am  
curious about the state of the DST changes under the other BSDs. Does  
anyone have any information for Net, Open, etc...?


ps: I do know that 90% of the DST patches for Mac OS X Tiger were  
deployed during the 10.4.5 update, and Apple recently issue a tz  
update for the remaining handful of zones that were just ratified.  
And that the new update requires 10.4.8 to already be applied.
