Darryl,
Hopefully they will fix it, if not you can take a working zone file from
10.2 and use it to overwrite /etc/localtime. It worked on our systems.
I thought timezone has glibc dependencies.

/etc/localtime is just a data file, and thus does not use any shared libraries.

I just tried to copy the PST8PDT zonefile to an old SUSE 8.1 that I have still running in an VMware -- and it works. Since the format is compatible so long back, it will work with all other intermediate releases as well.

Joachim
