Time and NTP on RTEMS

    I've recently needed to integrate time into my RTEMS applications
and have a couple questions.  I see that the NTP is supported, but only
in single-query mode (not a daemon).  This should be adequate for what
I want.  I have called time(), then localtime(), then strftime() to
get a printout of the current time, but I see that the time is off
by several hours, so I assume the timezone has not been properly
set.  How is this supposed to be done in RTEMS?
    Daemon mode of NTP is relatively complicated if I understand it
correctly (having to continually make small adjustments to slide the
device time to the proper time).  Is this something currently under
development (for RTEMS)?
