Reimplement NTP conversion using Calc

The previous implementation made use of `encode-time', which is not
guaranteed to work with times before the unix epoch.  Indeed, on at least one
Windows machine, the corresponding function `db/ntp-to-time' could not handle
such dates.  However, Calc can handle those independently of `encode-time',
and `db/ntp-to-time' has now been reimplemented in terms of the corresponding
Calc functions.

All (both) tests still pass.
