First, somebody gets to decide if this is really a bug in the NTP code or if
it is a bug in GCC.

If it's a bug in NTP (or perhaps even if it's not), somebody then gets to
open a report at http://bugs.ntp.org.  The odds are that if a patch to fix
the problem is attached to that report it will be applied lots sooner.
