I'd start with the man page for signal.  It looks like this message is 
leaving little to the imagination.  You may also need to look at the 
relevant files in /usr/linclude/...

On Linux, signal 18 is likely to be SIGCONT, which doesn't seem a 
particularly legitimate one for ntpd to be receiving, as you wouldn't 
normally run it in a way in which it could get stopped.

If you are not doing something strange, this is likely to be a low level 
platform compatibility issue, for which you will need to be able to 
understand the source code.
