Yep. Current FreeBSD /etc/localtime file has:
-----
moosa% hd -n 6 /etc/localtime.current
00000000 54 5a 69 66 00 00 |TZif..|
00000006
-----

The fifth byte is "0". While Fedora expects:
-----
moosa% hd -n 6 /etc/localtime.newversion
00000000 54 5a 69 66 32 00 |TZif2.|
00000006
-----

The fifth byte is "2".

It definitely does: I patched my 8-amd64-current with edwin's patches,
recompiled, reinstalled and copied a new zonefile to /etc/localtime:
-----
moosa% LANG=C date; /compat/linux/bin/date
Tue Oct 28 22:38:24 MSK 2008
Tue Oct 28 22:38:24 MSK 2008
