Hal, this looks like it could be the conflict with something in the
ssl development package (libssl-dev on Debian family and openssl-devel
on Red Hat). If you configure with --enable-crypto with the ssl devel
package present, you get a pyntpq that's broken in that way. If you
remove the package and rebuild, you get a working pyntpq. Eric made a
note in the INSTALL file about the conflict.
