Thank you for the in depth analysis. We are good for now.

Fine, but Solaris 10 /usr/bin/date is a 32-bit executable and is 
dynamically linked to a 32-bit C library /lib/libc.so.1 that is reading 
your TZif files. Presumably your "isainfo -v" outputs something like this:

   64-bit sparcv9 applications
         vis2 vis
   32-bit sparc applications
         vis2 vis v8plus div32 mul32

and the last two lines are what matter here.

I expect that 64-bit Solaris 10 apps don't have this problem. To find 
out whether I'm right, you can run '/usr/bin/sparcv9/ls -l' on a new 
file and look at the resulting timestamp.

Regardless, if this issue is a real problem for you then it's time to 
file a bug report with Oracle (you can tell them I sent you :-). And in 
the meantime you can get by with 'zic -b fat'.
