Actually we should try to prevent that as much as possible when we can. That
said ntp configure script is not nice enough to give you a switch to
enable/disable it.

but adding:
CONFIGURE_ENV="ac_cv_header_dns_sd_h=no" when you do not want to build with
libdns_sd should do the trick.

I have not tested, just guessed from reading
