Interesting.  On one system of mine it is a binary file, yet on the
other it is a symlink to /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Eastern.

Since you say that /etc/localtime is not a symlink, this little snippet
will tell you which zoneinfo files it matches:

ZONE_TMP_FILE=`mktemp` && find /usr/share/zoneinfo/ -type f -print0 |xargs -0 md5sum >>$ZONE_TMP_FILE && grep `md5sum /etc/localtime |cut -f1 -d\ ` $ZONE_TMP_FILE && rm -f $ZONE_TMP_FILE

Just copy it and paste it at a bash prompt.  Post the output here.
