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.
