I do not know if this is the case with NTP, but quite often it takes
considerable hacking of sources to get code to compile on non-x86
embedded hardware (i.e. ARM & MIPS)... It would probably help boost usage
if someone was assuring NTP sources compile on those platforms without
the need for modification.
