Linux ntpd Sync with Windows 2008

Debian squeeze comes with ntpĀ 4.2.6p2 which doesn't work with Windows 2008 R2 servers as seen in this bug. To fix this update to a newer version such as 4.2.7p326. Tried running version 4.2.6p5 but was receiving segfaults while running debian 6.0.4 squeeze with kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64.

sudo apt-get remove ntp ntpdate
wget http://archive.ntp.org/ntp4/ntp-dev/ntp-dev-4.2.7p326.tar.gz
tar xzvf ntp-dev-4.2.7p326.tar.gz
cd ntp-dev-4.2.7p326/
./configure --enable-clockctl
sudo make && make install

You then just need to setup your init script to start ntpd.
