The source code for ntp is _very_ available, just download the 
ntp-4.2.0.tar.gz file from http://www.ntp.org/.

Yes, you just need to get the local time zone and the local time right, 
the rest is relatively easy.

The two remaining potential stumbling blocks are first that you need to 
make sure that you have at least one working ntp server in your ntp.conf 
configuration file and second that you must disable any other service 
that might use port 123/UDP, like the w32time service.
