OpenBSD NTP dæmon with adjtimex patch

This package is based on the package 'openntpd' from project 'home:mirabile'.

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.

Unlike xntpd, it provides privilege separation and the ability to not
listen on remote-accessible sockets for improved security.
