  |    Is there some easy way to disable daylight savings on a NetBSD

What exactly are you attempting to achieve?

If all you want is to fix your local clock at some fixed offset from
UTC, then just set TZ=UTC-6 (or whatever you prefer).

On the other hand, if you believe that the tzdata is incorrect for some
reasonable set of users (such that you might want to alter it) then you
might want to collect some evidence and take it to - if there
is some place where summer time should not be applied, and there is
no existing zone for it, then one might be created.
