These are defined in docs/asciidoc.conf.  I changed the documentation to use
them back when we thought we might rename the binaries.

I've tried to use +{ntpd}+ to set the expansion everywhere one would normally
use fixed-width font to indicate one is talking about a command that might
be typed to a shell. Use your best judgment.
