Is autoconf-2.60 generally available for ALL platforms??  A lot of 
people are, or may be, running NTPD on obsolete hardware and/or 
operating systems.  I, for example, am running NTPD on Solaris 8.
It's a very old (at least four years old) version of NTPD but it works. 
  My Red Hat Linux is V3.??  Again, very old but it works.
