So you disable the setting of time on startup. That way there's nothing

wait until your GPS is working anyway, right?

Indeed. Knowing when this is the case is part of the issue.

So I think I will configure but not enable
ntpd. Then my new script will start ntpd when it sees the GPS has come
on line. And I will pray that none of the services I need barf if the
time changes in a way not to their liking. Seems a potentially fragile

I suggest 's/pray/test/g'

First you hope. Then you pray. Then you test. Then you pray.

Yours sincerely,
