We just went through an audit here.

All versions prior to 5.5 have a problem.  5.5 has the correct timezone

6.2 is OK, but earlier versions of 6.X also have old data.  We didn't
isolate exactly what versions, though.

In any case, if you've upgraded from a problematic version to a recent
version, you have to run tzsetup again to get the new timezone file
installed.  If you have an old version and can't updated, you can install
a port that brings your tz data up to date.
