What's the current status of ntpd in 3.0_BETA?  In the past I've had
several problems with it:

 * IPv6 broken (early 2.0 releases?)
 * DNS lookups broken (works in 2.0, broken in 1.6 and 3.0?)
 * documentation not installed (since ntpd 4.0 import?)

it also looks like the bind9 documentation is also not installed in
NetBSD 3.0?

I'm not sure which problems are real and which symptoms are results of
other problems, but I do know that ntpd does not behave consistently
between 1.6, 2.0, and 3.0, so I would ask whoever is doing ntp imports
to maybe regression test a little more carefully if you have time for
it, because the changes are actually breaking my systems.  Or maybe it
was bind9, not ntp.  Anyway, can anyone working on this verify the
expected status of the first two issues in 3.0?  Thanks!
