That is where the 2003 Oct port put them. I downloaded
the most recent 'ntp-dev' tarball I could find:
I did a 'make install' as we discussed previously. As
before, the files were compiled to:
I added the middle line of these three to rc.conf:
xntpd_flags="-A -b -c /etc/ntp.conf -p /var/run/ntpd.pid -l
After rebooting, the ntpd program is now running.
However, it doesn't appear to be able to 'hear' the NTP
broadcasts that the 2003 Oct version did. Here

The Windows computer generating the Tardis NTP broadcasts is
at IP address: 192.168.2.119. Does anyone have any idea
why it's not picking up these broadcasts?
Somewhere in here I also changed the CMOS Real Time Clock to
