Ah, yes, I got this from the HurdFr repository at
<http://packages.hurdfr.org/>.  Running it by hand à la ``sudo
/etc/init.d/ntpdate start'' works, by the way.

We have a problem there, because the Hurd's way of managing network
interfaces is not very well integrated with Debian's -- not at all, one
should probably say.  It would be pretty easy to implement some
infrastructure in the Hurd's pfinet server (that's the one to handle
network connectivity) to initiate call-backs as soon as an interface is
set up, etc. -- if we wanted to do that, which I'm not so sure about.
