./configure worked fine with libc5 but not with glibc for all ntp version
I tried (from 3-5.92 to 4.0.73e13). Debian has a fix for it (which amounts to
writing a wrapper around adjtimex to provide ntp_gettime) and you can
also use a workaround (as long as you don't need the `ntptime' utility):

ac_cv_func___ntp_gettime=yes ./configure

Is that a trick question ? It's been next to xntp3 on all the ftp servers
I've ever used.
