Yes, it was the first command I tested - but what got me was the
directory. I went to /usr/src/contrib/ntp as the files changed resided
there. Might be good idea to mention in handbook that /usr/src/contrib
is auxiliary tree and the build processes start from elesewhere.

As I just keep the clock of the box ticking as close to UTC as I can
using external time sources, anything else is excess baggage. I went
with the version from base, now that I know the directory from where
to start the build.
