No automatic PST->PDT time change?

The time change was the other night, but my machine still says PST
which is an hour behind the correct PDT. My CMOS clock is set to GMT.
Any suggestions? Do I need to update the timezone package?

Please CC any responses to my address as I'm no longer subscribed to
the list. I checked the list archives yesterday but could find no info
on this subject.
