Yes, If you are relinking ntpd, waf should recompile ntpd/version.c as part
of this batch. It doesn't need to rebuild version.c unless git HEAD has
changed. (The git hash is in version.c)
The problem is that version.c is using __DATE__ and __TIME__ which are the
compile times and we want the link times.
Plan B would be to get the build/link time at runtime somehow. I think we
discussed it but didn't come up with a way to do it. (That was a long time
