I'm seeing it:

isolar:2:23 % uname -a ; date ; echo "" ; rsh -n netbsd4me "uname -a ; date"
SunOS isolar 4.1.3 2 sun4c
Tue Mar 29 01:17:32 PST 1994

NetBSD 0.9a NETBSD4ME#0 sparc
Tue Mar 29 00:18:51 PST 1994

This is on a NetBSD/SPARC system using the March 26th sources.

On a related note, did someone pass those "Pacific-New" rules while I wasn't

On a Sun running SunOS 4.1.3, the files "PST8PDT", "localtime" and "US/Pacific"
are all the same under /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo.  "US/Pacific" and
"US/Pacific-New" are definitely different.

On NetBSD, "posixrules", "US/Pacific" and "US/Pacific-New" are all the same;
and all three are different from "PST8PDT".
