And I don't think it was poorly built.  My OpenBSD 3.3 machines rolled
over just fine.  As for your specific situation, I am not sure.  You
probably picked MST instead of MST7MDT when choosing a TZ.  Here is how
to tell:
$ ls -la /etc/localtime   
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  27 Jan 26 09:57 /etc/localtime ->

It is just a symlink so relink it.
