You could write a program like:
#define FTPDIR "/usr/spool/ftp"
#define FTPEXEC "/bin/ftpd"
And put that in inetd.conf to be invoked instead of ftpd. Then
make sure ftpd (statically linked, of course) is in ~ftp/bin/ftpd, along
with "ls" and the rest of the ftp environment. On systems with dynamic
linking and whatnot it may require some fiddling. I also link my ftpd
against a version of the syslog() code [part of the toolkit] that uses
UDP messages instead of writing to the bound UNIX domain socket.
