Vote from me, too.

However, you should repack it.  I tried running proftpd from inetd and
it failed to work.  Then I started it from the command line and it turned
out that proftpd was unable to open its scoreboard... the /var/proftpd
directory was missing.  I'd suggest three changes:

- Add an empty /var/proftpd directory or let the postinstall script
  create it.

- Remove the empty /usr/man/cat* directories.

- Build against the latest libncurses7.

Other than that, it looks ok.
