  Recently the Brazilian government announced different time zones. I
don't have all the details (I'm not even a Brazilian citizen), but,
for example, the change to summer time this year is supposed to happen
on November 3rd, while glibc thinks it has already
happened. Obviously, the Brazil related timezone data files are now
broken, and need to be fixed.

The canonical place to get the latest time zone information files is ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/. See also http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm.

I'm not sure what's involved in replacing the files used by glibc with updated ones, but it's probably fairly simple. Once you figure it out, that is. :-)
