As per cgf's suggestion, I intend to maintain lftp.

I downloaded your package and have a suggestion.

1- Install more documentation files. The following seem to be


Maybe INSTALL isn't that needed.

Done, I've updated my package files accordingly:

8ff00b94be5b837781eb37e14668a5c9  lftp-2.6.6-1-src.tar.bz2
84df955ca7ad369c51617d31b771f3e7  lftp-2.6.6-1.tar.bz2
06579af4dcf26fb941e31fe1c97b4d09  setup.hint

Also, I don't know if the following are mandatory for a port.

1- You used --disable-nls. There are no translations and the
binary isn't linked against cygintl-2.dll. Personally I
couldn't care less since I don't use any and they waste space,

I didn't use --disable-nls and configure seems to be trying to use nls:

checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking for GNU gettext in libc... no
checking for iconv... no, consider installing GNU libiconv
checking for GNU gettext in libintl... no

Do I need to install gettext or gettext-devel to use translations?

2- You compiled it with a 1.3.x dll. strings doesn't return
_fstat64 etc. With 1.5.x it should support large files. I never
tested it for a number of reasons, like no available space.

I may be wrong on this but I thought I had to wait for the libraries lftp depends on (openssl, readline and ncurses) to get compiled with 1.5.x before I compile lftp with 1.5.x.

BTW, I don't know if the following is a Windows limitation, but
I couldn't get anything downloaded with LFTP to store the time
from the server. I tested on FAT32 and NTFS. It does by default
on Linux, except on FAT32, where it behaves like in Cygwin.

This one sounds like it may be a little tricky. I'm going to put this one off for now (ie: it probably won't make into the first release).

I thought ftp:use-mdtm (from CVS) would do something, but it
doesn't, and from the name it'd only for FTP.
