No.  I use what is in the repos.  I am not a builder.  I have tried from 
time to time, but just don't do it enough.  Maybe when I retire.

No docs on these pages, and not familiar with how to find them.  How do 
they know what to guess?  tzupdate at least says it uses IPgeolocation.  
That will work some of the time.  IETF meetings often have the 
IPgeolocation pointing to where the LAST meeting was (like half the 
world away?).

thanks though for the pointers.
