Did you put the files in the right place?

zdump probably looks at /usr/share/zoneinfo (or local equivalent)
by default.  Postgres looks in $sharedir/timezone, where
"pg_config --sharedir" will tell you what $sharedir is.  You'll
probably need to update both of those directory trees and reboot
before everything in the system will notice the new rules.
