oh, forgot to add...

for RHL 6, 7, and 9 boxes (got some old iron in coloc centers doing 
free-nonprofit things that aren't convenient to rebuild from scratch), 
I've just tarred up the /usr/share/zoneinfo from an updated system, and 
untarred it onto the legacy systems, and its seemingly works.  

after doing teh untar, you must then

cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/<yourtimezone> /etc/localtime

zdump -v PST8PDT |grep 2007     should then show the corrected DST dates.
