There's a discrepancy here I am unsure about.  When I run the script:


on the Raspberry Pi, for "host" I get:


but, as you will see, the prefix above is:


I did try adding the directory in front of the existing PATH, but I 
still got the wrong sized executables.  Let me try with:


No, still getting an ntpd which is 2.87 MB in size, whereas on the 
Raspberry Pi native build it's 2.0 MB.  The Intel Debian version is 2.74 MB.
