Is the compiled time zone info file binary compatible across FreeBSD  
versions?  I have a couple of 4.x and one 5.x box still on my  
network, and I was wondering if it was possible to just copy the /etc/ 
localtime from a new 6.1 box on to all of them rather than having to  
install the updated zone file port.
