Solaris 2.6/7 NTP permissions problem

     Hi All!

     I reported this bug to Sun approx. 3 weeks ago.  Haven't gotten a
     response yet so I'm going ahead and releasing it.

     Problem:

     I've noticed that the XNTP daemon on Solaris 2.6 and 7 creates
     its drift file (default=/etc/inet/ntp.drift) world-writable (666).
     Even changing the permissions to something sane the permissions
     eventually get set back to 666 (not sure if this is at daemon restart,
     update of the drift file or both).

     Work-around:

     Simply add a umask command to the beginning of the XNTP startup
     script (/etc/init.d/xntpd).
