Shifting this discussion/troubleshooting to questions at lists.ntp.org:

 With the serial rate addressed, here are the ntpq -crv and ntpq -ccv '

godzilla# ntpq -crv
assID=0 status=c011 sync_alarm, sync_unspec, 1 event, event_restart,
version="ntpd 4.2.4p5-a (1)", processor="amd64",
system="FreeBSD/9.0-RELEASE", leap=11, stratum=16, precision=-19,
rootdelay=0.000, rootdispersion=3.000, peer=0, refid=INIT,
reftime=00000000.00000000  Thu, Feb  7 2036  1:28:16.000, poll=6,
clock=d2ecb59b.c4db29d7  Mon, Feb 20 2012  7:05:47.768, state=1,
offset=0.000, frequency=-12.503, jitter=0.002, noise=0.002,
stability=0.000, tai=0
godzilla# ntpq -ccv
assID=0 status=0101 clk_noreply, last_clk_noreply,
device="NMEA GPS Clock", timecode=, poll=13, noreply=11, badformat=0,
baddata=0, fudgetime1=0.000, stratum=0, refid=GPS, flags=0

  Its just the strangest thing that I cannot put my finger on. When I had
Debian's kfreebsd running, data from /dev/cuau0 came through just fine.
But once I switched over to FreeBSD v9 and patched the kernel for PPS,
I'm stuck in this limbo state of seeing data (note: cu -l /dev/cuau0 -s
9600) below
on /dev/cuau0, but with NTP running, it just comes back with nothing.
I also have /dev/gps0 linked to /dev/cuau0, so its not a missing link issue.

 Any help is appreciated.
