I was finally able to load the time zone tables using the following:
/usr/share/zoneinfo | /usr/local/mysql-advanced-5.6.10-osx10.7-x86/bin/mysql -u root mysql
My version of Mac OSX 10.8.3 did not have root user installed but I googled for the
instructions and installed it.
I then located the paths for mysql_tzinfo_to sql and also mysql.
I ran queries and the time zones tables are now populated.
Please forgive me for all the confusion and wasted time I may have caused anyone. Thank
you all for your help and suggestions.
