Is that not covered by the recent Errata Notice updating the timezone data?


Looks like there's a 4 hour difference from UTC to me:

% env TZ=America/Caracas date
Fri Dec 30 12:56:20 VET 2016
% env TZ=UTC date
Fri Dec 30 16:56:37 UTC 2016

If you're using a release version, using freebsd-update(8) to get the
latest patchlevel should suffice.

Otherwise, if you're building base from source, simply update to a
version more recent than about 6th December.
