Before the transition, this rule line is active:
Rule Chile 2012 2014 - Sep Sun>=2 4:00u 1:00 S
so Chile is assumed to be on daylight saving time, i.e., -03. You can
verify this by running 'zdump -c2016,2017 -v America/Santiago'. Its
output should contain:
America/Santiago Sun May 15 02:59:59 2016 UT = Sat May 14 23:59:59 2016
CLST isdst=1 gmtoff=-10800
America/Santiago Sun May 15 03:00:00 2016 UT = Sat May 14 23:00:00 2016
CLT isdst=0 gmtoff=-14400
