Add adjtimex to Busybox

I've discovered that I need to use adjtimex to use ntpclient and openntpd on my system. Busybox has the capability of providing that utility, but it's not currently selected. It would be very helpful if it were. You can reference my experience in this thread:

I've realized that there's another way that you might like better. Ntpclient has a stand alone version of adjtimex that could be installed with ntpclient. This would save bloat in busybox. I've created a patch to the ntpclient package makefile that adds adjtimex and rate.awk to the package. Rate.awk is needed for the frequency fine tuning procedure in the ntpclient howto. I will attach the patch file.
