Great NTP Client/Server for dialup users. Chronyd can sync the local clock to
several time servers. With a dialup-script you can tell chrony to go online
and in your ip-down you tell it to go offline. I use it that way and as
timeserver for my home network.
For all recent versions of Linux, there is support for using the systems
real-time clock (RTC) at boot time to restart chronyd with a good estimate of
the true time. This is done by working out how much time the RTC gains or
loses over a certain period, and using this information to correct the RTC
reading at the next boot.
I put it into net-misc in my portage tree.

Makefile and configure patch
The Makefile.in and configure script did not allow to set mandir and infodir.
There was no DESTDIR or something like that either.
There is a new release of chrony now and I adapted my ebuild to it. Now there is a mandir infodir and destdir. I can be the maintainer of this ebuild if you like. To get new versions of ebuilds I've done go to http://stud.upb.de/~q9tharkun/
As of 12 May there seems to be a chrony already in net-misc.
If there is an issue with that ebuild, please contact either myself or the
