In addition to:

/usr/sbin/zdump -v /etc/localtime | grep 2007

...which will give you your default timezone.  I remember awhile back there 
was much weeping and gnashing of teeth because updates to tzdata _didn't_ 
update /etc/localtime.  I would hope they would have fixed that by now.  Part 
of our configuration engine makes sure that /etc/localtime is up to date with 
the appropriate /usr/share/zoneinfo/... file.
