You should have only one source paragraph in the control file, but you can
have many package paragraphs. The paragraph for xftp should start with:
Package: xftp, have adequate dependency lines, and end with a description.
When your rules file calls dpkg-gencontrol you need to give it the -pxftp
parameter and all should work as expected.
