You have downloaded the wrong artefacts - You have downloaded the source code for the userspace components, not the tzdata per se. 

For what is worth, the new Brazil DST has been shipped as few months ago, in the 2019b release - see announcement in https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz-announce/2019-July/000056.html 

Download tzdata (not tzcode) 2019b or 2019c and you will be good.

> Dear Sirs,

> I am a PHP programmer and I verified a problem when I setted a timezone
> location to "America/Sao_Paulo" for a program.

> I observed that data was showing dates and times with 1 hour difference.
> After some search, I downloaded the TZ database from
> https://www.iana.org/time-zones/repository/tzcode-latest.tar.gz where I
> believe that Brazilian DST remains setted, despite of Brazilian Governament
> has officialy cancelled DST in Brazil as described in the file southamerica
> finded in the TZ database in lines 946 to 949.

> I hope I could help.
