Brazil timezone changes for Oct1999 and Feb 2000 and a question

Brazil/East time changes for Oct1999 and feb 2000 occured for
Rule Brazil 1999 only - Oct Sun>=1 0:00 1 D
Rule Brazil 2000 only - Feb Sun>=26 0:00 0 S
The time is not certain. I have yet to see a governement rule that firmly
states at what specific hour to time change is to occur.
We have TZ=Brazil/East. The original southamerica file on our system had
"Rule Brazil 1988 max - Oct Sun>=15 0:00 1 D"
In late September I changed max to only for the 1988 rule and added the 1999
and 2000 rules. But my system only changed to EDT on Sun the 17th of
October. I ran ´truss -a -f -wall -vall -rall date´, which revealed that
date opens /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/Brazil/East, but does not open
southamerica. After updating the southamerica file do I have to ´rebuild´
the Brazil/East file in some way?
Attached is my southamerica file.
