Yes I beleive that would be correct. The link provided earlier by Dave 
McCammon was for complete new TZ data. The update is easy and worked 
just fine for my FreeBSD, NetBSD. Unpacking the new zone files and 
running make, make install, then either running tzsetup or linking your 
appropriate zone file to /etc/localtime. Solaris boxes required reading 
the man pages on zic.

So new zone files should be available when the time comes.
