System: NetBSD 1.6_BETA4 NetBSD 1.6_BETA4 (GENERIC) #3: Tue Jul  2 15:38:27 CEST 2002 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	The clockctl pseudo-device, which is apparently required to
	run ntpd in a chrooted environment is not included in the
	GENERIC kernel configuration file on the i386 port, and
	apparently not in any other kernels.

	If I have understood correctly, this means that it will not be
	possible to run ntpd chrooted in an "out-of-the-box install".

	Try to enable ntpd_chroot; watch it fail.

	Add clockctl pseudo-device to kernel configurations, or
	otherwise make it possible to run ntpd chrooted.
