This is one of the things I added to INSTALL.amiga file
I just sent to Chris Hopps. The timezone settings are
controled in part by the file /etc/localtime. This is a
link into /usr/share/zoneinfo and by default is set to
US/Pacific. Just find a file in the directory that matches
your timezone and change the link.

I think there is also something related to what time you
have your Amiga setup for in the hardware and how that is
used by NetBSD. I don't remember the details, maybe someone
else can clarify that point.
