Whilst I understand part of the ntpd version string - the 4.2.7p380 part -
(which I know may change soon), there are two parts I don't understand.
Here are some samples:
>From a FreeBSD compile:
ntpd 4.2.7p380 at 1.2483 Sun Aug 4 05:55:39 UTC 2013 (1)
where does "@1.2483" com from?
>From two different Windows compilations:
ntpd 4.2.7p378 at 1.2483-o Aug 01 10:10:23.52 (UTC+01:00) 2013 (1)
ntpd 4.2.7p348 at 1.2891-o Jan 18 13:50:53 (UTC+01:00) 2013 (5)
Again there is that same "@1.2483" string, and that's from compiling two
different snapshots at two different times on two different OSes, but why at
the end does one compile have "(1)" and the other "(5)"? I think I've seen
that when you edit the source and re-compile, but it would be nice to have
