The new time code in the kernel seems to have broken xntp. Firstly
my current version of xntpd just coredumps when run under 1.3.28 and
Works fine under 1.2.13

So I decided to compile a new version, 3.4x.
With the 1.3.30 includes it fails to compile on ntp_unixclock.c
because it includes <sys/time.h> which includes the kernel's time.h

ntp_unixclock.c:669: structure has no member named `mode'

Changing the kernel includes to 1.2.13 and it compiles fine.

startup disk, and replace head - wow, what a night!
