Making progress, Paul, thanks!  I managed to get gpsd to autostart with 
the dpkg-reconfigure, but on ntp it said: "ntp is broken or not fully 
install".  I still says that after I copied the ntp executables from my 
local directory to /usr/bin.  On trying to restart ntp it failed:

pi at raspberrypi ~ $ sudo /etc/init.d/ntp restart
[ ok ] Stopping NTP server: ntpd.
[....] Starting NTP server: ntpd/usr/sbin/ntpd: The ``user'' option has 
been disabled -- built without --enable-clockctl or --enable-linuxcaps
ntpd - NTP daemon program - Ver. 4.2.7p314
USAGE:  ntpd [ -<flag> [<val>] | --<name>[{=| }<val>] ]... \
                 [ <server1> ... <serverN> ]

but trying to run ntpd from the command-line it works correctly:

pi at raspberrypi ~ $ sudo /usr/local/bin/ntpd
pi at raspberrypi ~ $

and continues to run after I log out, with excellent PPS support.  I 
took all the defaults when building NTP and set no special options 
myself.  What have I done wrong now!?
