ITP: lukemftp


I intent to package lukemftp.

`lukemftp' is what many users affectionately call the enhanced ftp
client in NetBSD (http://www.netbsd.org).  The `lukem' comes from
the account name of the NetBSD developer who wrote most of the
enhancements: Luke Mewburn <lukem@netbsd.org>.

The enhancements over the standard ftp client in 4.4BSD include:
   * command-line editing within ftp
   * command-line fetching of URLS, including support for:
       - http proxies (c.f: $http_proxy, $ftp_proxy)
       - authentication
   * context sensitive command and filename completion
   * dynamic progress bar
   * IPv6 support (from the WIDE project)
   * modification time preservation
   * paging of local and remote files, and of directory listings
     (c.f: `lpage', `page', `pdir')
   * passive mode support, with fallback to active mode
   * `set option' override of ftp environment variables
   * socks4/socks5 support
   * TIS Firewall Toolkit gate ftp proxy support (c.f: `gate')
   * transfer-rate throttling (c.f: `-T', `rate')
