There is a file of leap seconds. You can edit it to add your own. Then the
normal ntpd will make leap seconds.
That only makes them at midnight UTC.
The file has a checksum. You either have to write some code to compute the
new checksum, or comment it out and use a version of ntpd that accepts a leap
file without a checksum.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
