When updating I follow the instructions here:
The instructions under "Updating NTP to a later version" you need to do
just once, so see where they fall over and let us know what the error
The later instructions under "Updating the updater - telling portmaster
about a newer version" are what I do each time I update to a new release
of the development version. These are under FreeBSD 8.2 but I imagine
they would also work under 8.1. I keep a copy of the current binaries
on a remote FTP server in case an upgrade goes wrong. Essentially
that's the files I compiled before in "/usr/local/sbin/ntp*".
I could put my current version binaries into a Zip file and upload it
for you to try, if you like.
