My 2 cents...
> ntpd 4.2.7p348 at 1.2891-o Jan 18 13:50:53 (UTC+01:00) 2013 (5)
The "1.2891" comes from bitkeeper. It's a sequence number, or UID, or
something close to that. It comes from:
bk -R prs -hr+ -nd:I: ChangeSet > sntp/scm-rev
The "-o" says you built it with the crypto option enablesd o is for OpenSSL,
or something like that.
The "(5)" is the sequence number for the number of times you have done an
edit/build cycle since the last time you did a bk pull or unpacked a tar file.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
