Yes.

Background:  rtfm zic, tzfile and zdump.  Having absorbed this,  check
out http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm.

Having digested the above information, go to elsie.nci.nih.gov and ftp
the appropriate time zone data files to your system.  Now you will
have the updated time zone source files.  Then you need only use zic
to compile them.  When using zic, use the -l option to set up your
localtime file.  Learn from me and don't use the -L option for leap
seconds.

Caveat:  the above is a general outline of what I did.  Filling in the
details (e.g., file permissions) is left as an exercise for the
informed reader. :-)
