Very nice, and quite useful.

You might consider trying a bleeding edge (dev tree) version of ntpd,
directly from ntp.org, instead of the ports version:
There has been some changes in the NMEA driver which, at least for me,
required a tweak or two of the ntp.conf file.
You'll also need to get rid of the default ntp* executables in order for
the new ones in /usr/local/* to be found.
