It seems that some corrupts haved occured with your /etc/master.passwd. You can restore it to normal state, try: vipw to edit /etc/master.passwd. Save it with no changes. You can also use pwd_mkdb to update password database.

You are right, even with minimal installation, the current FreeBSD requires a minimum of 600 MB, especially if you go for a amd64 release. There is still some options left: Using an "old" 7.x or 8.x (i386) release I tried to install an "old" 7.3 (i386) with everything to minimal and it took 270 MB. Assuming your machine is old enough, you will not care ...

You should first familiarize yourself with FreeBSD and building/getting ports. I really advise you to quietly read the FreeBSD handbook, as FreeBSD is not Linux. FreeBSD itself is a minimal coherent system (slightly server oriented, as having no X11 by default). Then you can add ports, also called packages when in binary form. The chapter 5 from the ...

In addition to the two options you provide in your answer to your question you can also use ntpns from phk@freebsd. However ntpns is targeted towards high performance stratum-1 servers so it may not be what you are looking for. ntpns download: http://phk.freebsd.dk/NTPns/phkrel/ Personally I think you should use the latest 4.2.7 from the ntp reference ...

Chrony seems to be a drop-in replacement for ntpd that is being actively maintained, and as of this writing, does not appear to have any known, unresolved vulnerabilities. OpenBSD's OpenNTPD also appears to be actively maintained, however there appears to be some valid criticism (OpenNTPD's docs, Wikipedia) that it may not be as exactly accurate as ISC's ...

I noticed that the user immediately before lbutler had a UID and GID of 10014 (instead of the expected 1014). That user changed her password and after that, UID 1015 could not login. Using vipw I reversed the two lines and saved the file. Both users can now login and ownerships appear correctly. Thanks for the pointers.
