openntpd wont start - unknown user _ntp

I haven't found anything in the bug reports for this package but I can't get openntpd to run on my solaris 10 boxen. Package is CSWopenntpd version 3.9p1,REV=2014.12.22. It goes into maintenance mode and I get this error:

ntpd: unknown user _ntp

I've gotten things like that on FreeBSD and Linux but I'd rather not add that user to solaris if there is a quick fix to the package or package install.

Anyone have any advice?
