NTPD hangs on boot

Recently did a cvsup and make world procedure, have a couple glitches.
NTP will no longer start by enabling it in rc.conf. At each boot I see the
"starting nptd"...and then nothing; the booting process hangs. I have to
kill nptd via ctrl-c. Then boot process proceeds normally. I can manually
start nptd from the command line, and it starts, runs and syncs up normally.
Probably related, after the make world, sendmail also gave me trouble,
complaining that it could find file after configuration file (all of which
existed). Then it would inform me that "Recipient names must be specified"
as if I was trying to use sendmail to send a message. I screwed around with
this for a while, to no avail, then just installed postfix 'cause I missed
my mail server too much. That fixed the issue with sendmail hanging up the
Any clues to what I might have done wrong, or neglected to do? I'm puzzled,
have man'd, googled, and not found much...
