NTP, the Network Time Protocol, is used to keep the computer clocks
synchronised. It provides the ability to sync the local clock to remote NTP
servers and can act as NTP server itself, redistributing the local clock.
This is an alternative implementation of the NTP software, made by the OpenBSD
project. It makes use of privilege separation, only implements a subset of the
NTP protocol, and IN THIS PATCHED VERSION _does_ adjust the rate of the clock.
The WTF edition also adds another couple of patches for better behaviour, and
its configuration listens on INADDR_ANY by default (change this for IPv6).
It also synchronises with a REFERENCE timeserver at startup.
