Have a look at lukem-ftpd (as included from NetBSD); it includes a
configure script and builds under Linux.

It provides a "rateget" and "rateput" that can be set for different users
(or ftp sites).

But maybe I misunderstand your need: do you want some ftpd to check the
transfer bandwidth/speed and then set as needed?
