Yo All!

Uh, oh.  My boo-boo.  I got this wrong.

Gentoo stable on RasPi has 32 bit time_t:

Checking sizeof long                                            : 4 
Checking sizeof time_t (time.h)                                 : 4 

WARNING: This system has a 32-bit time_t. 
WARNING: Your ntpd will fail on 2038-01-19T03:14:07Z. 

# uname -a
Linux pi3 4.9.17-v7+ #1 SMP Wed Mar 29 12:17:48 PDT 2017 armv7l ARMv7 Processor rev 4 (v7l) BCM2835 GNU/Linux

I'm thinking the warning also needs to be in the binary, must users
never compile from source.
