I have the same problem /dev/oncore like all reference clocks are hard
coded into ntpd.
However, adding the links into /etc/devfs.conf does not work cos
/etc/rc.d/devfs seems to be run after ntpd has started. Surely devfs
should be started earlier so that any soft links are generated before
other daemons start?
