Right - it comes with the copy in /usr/sbin/ntpd but its generally old 
and most people install and then do a binary update through freebsd-update.

By the way - I am building a 7.2 image for SPARC64 support under 
freebsd-update since one doesnt exist and on the older sparc's the build 
makeworld can take three days.
