I think the ln-s line is backwards, I didn't check it.  I think it's
been a while since they used softlinks for localtime

The use of "ln -s" will work just fine as written. I don't know why tzsetup makes a copy of the zoneinfo file rather than setting up a symlink, but making a copy simply allows the file in /etc to become out-of-sync if one updates the files under /usr/share{/lib}/zoneinfo without re-running tzsetup again.
