Is this the 'stock' ntp that ships with FreeBSD 8.3 or did it come
from the ports system?  Are you running the GENERIC 8.3 kernel or one
that you customized?  If it is a custom kernel, are you building all
of the modules?  Is your system am i386, AMD64 or something else?  A
lot of questions for information that you did not provide in your
original post.

FreeBSD 8.3 runs fine on my AMD64 system.
