[ntp:hackers] NEMA refclock, PPS and Solaris.

Our pogo.udel.edu runs Solaris 10 with stock timepps.h version in the 
current development version, which is probably the same as the release 
version. Our rackety.udel.edu runs the same thing in FreeBSD 7.0. So far 
as I know, there never has been any version but 1. If the driver is 
calling time_setparams directly and not via the
new interface there has been no change, as only the header file is 
involved and that has not changed.
