Right, this allows cvsup to run. But my UTC was generated today
-r--r--r-- 4 root wheel 118 Dec 2 12:42 /usr/share/zoneinfo/UTC

It seems that this file has some sort of incompatibility with something
(I have no idea what) which causes cvsup to dump core.
So, removing the file fixes a symptom, but not the cause.
