That's good news, Maarten.

So, one question which now arises is:  how should the current Windows NTP 
handle the libeay32.dll version issue?  Having it packaged with Meinberg's 
distribution, and putting it into the application directory seems to be an 
approach which works.

Should those installing by copying ntpd.exe etc. from Zip archives be 
expected to look after libeay32.dll themselves?  Should the bindings be 
dynamic rather than static so that ntpd can fall back if the required 
entry point or even the DLL isn't available?  Should the "correct" version 
of libeay32.dll always be included with the Zip archive?
