i just looked at your url below and have some things to complain:
  - don't build it as a native package, use orig.tar.gz and diff.gz
  - use Standards-Version: 3.6.1 instead of 3.5.8
  - fixup debian/copyright
    +It was downloaded from http://www.pfpt.de
    s/pftpt/pftpd/
  - fixup debian/init.d
    +# skeleton     example file to build /etc/init.d/ scripts.
    well.. you know
    +  #reload)
    you know that too
  - fixup debian/rules
    +#      dh_installpam
    remove anything you don't need

why didn't you use pftp-1.1.6-0.1 from pool/main/p/pftp as base?

what's about bug #110358 ? does the bug exist? is the patch valid?
why not using it?

well.. in this current state.. probably not.

fix up the stuff above and i'll take another look on it.

welcome.

btw: take a closer look on the new-maintainer-guide. there are a lot of
hints about things you got a little bit wrong. 

btw2: a name like '.orig-1.tar.gz' should ring bells awaking
tut-anch-amun or someone old like him :)

btw3: if you need a further hint for some of the things above go ahead
and write me on- or offlist, just as you like.

cu, ms
