As far as I can tell, it doesn't look to be the exact same package as
the one in [extra].
The [extra] package includes the ntp daemon, while this one only
bundles the ntpdate program.
Yet, the overhead is not huge (the 'ntp' package takes 1.59 MB while
'ntpdate' from AUR takes 0.18 MB), and imho, it isn't worth the time
compiling the AUR package.
The best solution might be to keep ntpdate-dev and delete ntpdate from
