ports/base ntpd rc.d script with WITHOUT_NTP=yes

I just upgraded my server to 10.1-STABLE r281264 and when I ran 
mergemaster it told me that /etc/rc.d/ntpd was stale and would I like to 
delete it. It's never done this before. I've figured out it's because I 
have WITHOUT_NTP=yes in /etc/src.conf. I did this because I use the 
ports version of ntpd and thus wanted to remove the base installed 
version so that when I run commands like ntpq it's using my possibly 
newer port installed version and not the older one.

However, the port version doesn't have its own rc script. It usually 
uses the base version with ntpd_program and ntpd_config set.  With this 
latest change it means I have to have the base version installed again.  

Is it possible to get the port version to have its own rc script?
