I have a FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE system built form sources that ntpd compile from the port with default options immediately crashes when launched. However when running it with the -d option on the command line to try and determine the cause the program runs fine and doesn't crash.
I have another very similar system built with the same /etc/make.conf and /etc/src.conf files only with more ports installed than this system which doesn't have the problem. So I rebuilt this system entirely again, doing the full make buildworld, make buildkernel and installation. Followed by a portmaster -af to reinstall all ports problem persisted. I also deleted the ntp.conf and copied the one form the FreeBSD /usr/src/etc/ntp.conf file to rule out configuration file corruption as the cause. I also tried the net/ntp-devel branch port, similar problem as well, only it exists with a signal 10 when not in debugging mode whereas the net/ntp branch port gives me a signal 11.
Further searching and I finally discovered the version of pearl on the working system was from the 5.14 branch and not the 5.12 branch. Updating pearl and recompiling all pearl dependent ports seems to have resolved the issue. Below is information about the system, and relevant log files, everything is working for me now, but I wanted to pass this information on in case there is something useful in it to help you maintain the port.
Correction, I tried a restart shortly after sending this, it now no longer starts without the -d option on the command line again. Any suggestions for additional troubleshooting?
