the 'time' and 'ntp' services support on Unix is wrapped up in the actual
'inetd' program - most ported implementations of inetd also wrap these
services in inetd too, this is why you'll have difficulty finding source
code for these two services as separate entities.

I'll have a look (or you could get your programmers to) to see if the
functions that support these two services is easy to rip out into standalone
programs for the AS/400.
