Take a look at /usr/src/share/zoneinfo/northamerica,
particularly for Indianapolis.
It looks like, at least on a 6-Stable system(March 7),
that if you use the Indianapolis choice you will get
the DST change. It(the 6-stable zoneinfo file) isn't
as new as the one obtained from the link below but the
change for Indianapolis looks the same.

This has instructions for updating zone file info.

I had to use this on some 4.11-stable systems that I
have in production.

If you find any discrepancies in the above, please let
me know.

Thanks.
Dave
