Exactly what are you trying to accomplish? Obviously you are doing
something wrong but it would be better if you explained why you are
doing it so we can suggest better options. It is dangerous to muck
around with the ntp_cypto.c and ntp_protocol.c code unless you really
understand what you are doing. We certainly will not be supporting any
crypto which is not publically and freely and available and unencumbered
by any patents, or other claims. In addition your crypto extension would
have to pass a security review.
