Which version is that?  

The version that downloads when I 'cd /usr/ports/net/ntp' 
then 'make install' is this one:
(2003 Oct 15 00:17:54 2,514,502 bytes)

This file contains:

/usr/ports/net/ntp/work/ntp-4.2.0/libisc/ifiter_ioctl.c --> 
2003 July 26 14:36:22 21,945 bytes

Since this doesn't contain the broadcastclient fix done in 2004 March:

...Would I be better off replacing the ifiter_ioctl.c file with this
older version, or download, compile and install the latest dev

2004 Oct 2 11:14:00 2,447,703 bytes

This version also contains a pre-March ifiter_ioctl.c file:
    ifiter_ioctl.c 2004 Feb 24 23:55:48 23,237 bytes

Are there patches that automatically incorporate these fixes as the
executable is being compiled?  Or, do I need to do this manually
as I am planning to do?

Thank you for helping me understand this.
