I would like to build ntp without ntpdate.

I configured the installation with this command: --without-PACKAGE and replaced PACKAGE with ntpdate as it is done with the option --without-sntp.

Somehow the ntpdate executable is still build.

Do you have any idea what causes this behaviour?

Regards Frogtime


You don't have to use ntpdate as ntpd -q works for ntp4. And having the "to be retired" ntpdate around does not hurt anything.

If you really care about removing it, you are going to need to think like a package maintainer. Dig deeper into the configure script, or remove it at the end of your build.
