Chrooted ftpd users can't access system time.

I use /etc/ftpchroot to chroot the users but i don't think i should be 
forced to link a file into each users home directory. That's not only a 
lot of users but there will also be questions from users about what kind 
of file it is and what it's doing there. I would appreciate any other 
solutions, if they exist.
