I tried it. It's not silent.

ntpd doesn't depend on any of our libraries. If it works before install, I
expect it will keep working. We could add a sanity check of running ntpd
--version, both before and after the actual install.
We could similarly check ntpq post install.

I'm willing to punt on cross compiles until we get a good example.
I don't know anything about bounce directories. Does our install step have
to know about them? Should it work if we install them where we are told?
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
