That was what I was looking for!  In my version of ntpq, at least,
it's spelled ':config' rather than 'config:', but that did it.

Unfortunately, this still doesn't get me anywhere, because the
"passwd" command in ntpq 4.2.6 doesn't take any arguments.  Looks like
this is fixed in ntp-dev 4.2.7, so I'll have to wait until 4.2.7
becomes the official stable version.
