SuSE xntp Changelog:

* Wed Jul 13 2005 - hvogel at suse.de
  - rename most config files, init scripts and the like FROM XNTPD TO
    NTP to be in sync with other vendors/LSB


6.9 NTP-Related Files Renamed

For reasons of compatibility with LSB (Linux Standard Base), most
configuration files and the init script were renamed from xntp to ntp.
The new filenames are:

* /etc/slp.reg.d/ntp.reg
* /etc/init.d/ntp
* /etc/logrotate.d/ntp
* /usr/sbin/rcntp
* /etc/sysconfig/ntp
