I discovered that some program in LM8.0 didn't create /etc/localtime;
instead, it copied the entire /usr/share/zoneinfo directory and
sub-directories to /etc and renamed zoneinfo to localtime.

After removing /etc/localtime (zoneinfo) and copying (not linking) the
correct zone to /etc/localtime -- everything worked correctly.
