        TZ data for Brazil in /usr/src/share/zoneinfo/southamerica
        is wrong. DST starts on next Sunday, but the system believes
        it has already started. The blame is on the Brazilian government,
        which changes the rules for DST every single year.
        $ TZ=America/Sao_Paulo date

        it already has a correct "southamerica" file.
