I'm going to suggest that you check the gpsd mailing list archives for
some hints. I don't actually use the gpsd pps stuff. I just use gpsd
to pass around location data.

Waitaminnit... If you're using the OpenBSD package, I disabled the
ntpshm/pps stuff in favour of activating the nmea(4) line discipline
to drive openntpd. I suppose you could adjust the port's makefile, but
I've not actually tested the ntp.org daemon.


GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
