[rb-general] freebsd 12.0 problem

so I just did an upgrade from FreeBSD 11.2 to 12.0 on our freebsd test
host and now the job trying to build FreeBSD master fails with

ERROR: Required ntpd user is missing, see /usr/src/UPDATING.
*** [__installcheck_UGID] Error code 1

full log at

What is also strange, on the host I see this:

root at freebsd-jenkins:~ # grep ntp /etc/passwd /etc/group
/etc/passwd:ntpd:*:123:123:NTP Daemon:/var/db/ntp:/usr/sbin/nologin
root at freebsd-jenkins:~ # id ntpd
id: ntpd: no such user
root at freebsd-jenkins:~ # 

which to me doesnt really make sense.

Any hints welcome.
