As best I recall, NTP needs the PPS signal from the GPS.  I don't
think this is compatible with gpsd.

It doesn't really make sense that gpsd would make a good clock source;
there's too much nondeterministic behavior in the network connection.
The NTP protocol has some provisions for determining latency, etc, but
gpsd doesn't.
