Subject: timezone for changelog entries

I have come across a problem which I think is related to timezone 
issues.  Basically the datestamps on changelog entries are different 
depending on the current timezone.  This is not necessarily a problem 
but when I build an RPM is the timezone taken into account then as well?

If the same spec file is used to build rpm on 2 machines in different 
timezones, will the changelog for each one be the same?

If these rpms are then installed on the other machine, does it compound 
the time difference?  This appears to be what is happening, giving me a 
3 day spread of changes.  (In one case, the spec file has May 29.  One 
machine shows me May 28 and another shown May 30).

Can anyone clear up how this works.
