We just went through an audit here.

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

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.
