Yes, what IS the correct solution to this problem?  Under FreeBSD if you 
touch a file called /etc/wall_cmos_clock, then the startup script runs a 
program called adjkerntz, which ADJusts the KERNel TimeZone.  On my 
NetBSD system, there didn't seem to be anything like that, and I didn't 
want to keep resetting the clock, so I took the cheating way out and 
changed the NetBSD timezone to GMT!
