Hello all,

I;ve downloaded the Development version 4.2.5p111 off NTP from
http://www.ntp.org/downloads.html I installed it with the foilowing

./configure --prefix={path}

When I browse to the path where everything should be there are only 3
directories looking like this:

bash> ls
bin  lib  man

Now where are the config files? I expected them to be in this path
because if I read the makefile:

sysconfdir = ${prefix}/etc

well my prefix is /home/joah/ntp, so the conf-files should be at /home/
joah/ntp/etc. but that directory does not exists! what have I done

I also took a look at /etc, there are some ntp conf files, but those
are created months ago when I installed the machine, they are not
created by my installation.

anyone know how I get the conf files installed? What have I done wrong
here ?
