Not that I know of.  Why would you want to do that and/or what are you trying 
to do?

Perhaps there is some confusion with the word "configure".

"waf configure" is part of the build process.  It sets up things for "waf 
build" and makes build/config.h which is included by most modules when they 
get compiled and linked to make ntpd.

The other use for the word "configure" is the run time parameters for ntpd 
that come from the command line and a configuration file which defaults to 

If your problem is ntp.conf, it can be pretty simple.  (You can actually do 
it all from the command line.)

Do you have servers you want to use?  Then ntp.conf can be as simple as:

server <server1>
server <server2>
server <server3>

You can get ideas from the ntp.conf on any handy Linux or BSD box..

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
