Using libmap (see man libmap.conf for details) you can tell ntpd to load
existing version library instead of expected, but missing one.

First, check with ldd what libraries ntpd depends on and which one(s) it's
unable to find/load. Then look for existing version of that library in /lib,
/usr/lib and /usr/local/lib . And finally edit /etc/libmap.conf .
