but if you do that, then you need to make sure you tell tzsetup your
BIOS clock is NOT set to UTC. re-run tzsetup and make sure your options

if you have the wrong TZ set , or wrong setting, ntpdate won't change
anything. NTP rports UTC time, which in conjunction with the TZ
settings on your machine, set your local time.

check /etc/defaults/rc.conf if you want rc.conf options.

if none of this works, what do 
ls -l /etc/localtime

md5 /etc/localtime

show ?
