I had a similar feeling when I was expanding my NTP test suite to test
basic Autokey functionality and compatibility between 4.2.2, 4.2.4 and
4.2.6 version. I eventually got most of it working, but I'm not sure
if it's working as intended or accidentaly by misplacing a private
key, etc.

I wasn't able to get the MV scheme working though. I have read the
official ntp-keygen page and the wiki document.
