This is how I've installed most systems since last year:
First use the installer, then while still in the editor to check out the
ntp.conf file, I extract the latest binaries that I've personally
compiled and overwrite the installer-generated set.
As soon as I exit the editor, the installer will immediately startup the
service, but now using my binaries. :-)
