Have you also customized the directories in the Makefile, built
the utilities (e.g. zic), compiled the data with the utilities,
and installed the updates where your system expects to find them
(normally /usr/share/zoneinfo/), without any errors?

Each of these are common reasons why systems don't see updated
tz data.

Have you checked if your system distros' binary package for tzdata
is release 2016g or higher, and installed the update?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
