Not ever having had to configure DST before, any advice on a work
around since most OSes provide no DST for my timezone?
While we're on this subject, what do we do when DST is extended?

I am sure that an update between now and next Spring will bring us updated timezones, so as long as you never update your machine will you be SOL, otherwise you will be ok


Yes I beleive that would be correct. The link provided earlier by Dave McCammon was for complete new TZ data. The update is easy and worked just fine for my FreeBSD, NetBSD. Unpacking the new zone files and running make, make install, then either running tzsetup or linking your appropriate zone file to /etc/localtime. Solaris boxes required reading the man pages on zic.

So new zone files should be available when the time comes.
