Patch attached along with a simple test. Please take a look and see if
it makes sense.

Here's an attempt:

The date_time library is affected by the change to the start and end
dates of US Daylight Saving Time in 2007
 - There is a deprecated template class boost::date_time::us_dst_rules
   which hard-codes the date for US DST changes.  Ideally code using
this should be remediated, but a patch is available.  Since the logic is
in inline template code, all components which use it will have to be
rebuilt to ensure the change is picked up.
 - Boost ships with a user-editable database of timezone and DST
   information (libs/date_time/data/date_time_zonespec.csv) which needs
to be updated.
