 Replying to [comment:4 ryandesign]:

 providing support for earlier versions of macOS that do not have features
 he wants to use in his software.

 Yeah, I know. :-) As seen here:
 cc9491c82 Drop support for OS X 10.11.  Apple screwed this pooch too many
 different ways.
 Though that was actually based on taking a wrong approach to fixing code
 that was broken in multiple ways, anyway.

 Supporting ntpsec on the Mac may eventually become intractable, but for
 now it's not *that* hard to fix, by reverting the two commits that broke
 10.12, and adding a few additional patches for <10.12.  Since the 10.12
 and <10.12 patches touch at least one common file, I didn't split them
 into separate patchfiles.
