Because noone packaged it. I looked into it a long time ago, and it looked
like it was based on fairly old BSD source. As several security
vulnerabilities in ftp and ftpd have been found over the last years, I
suspect it would be quite a lot of work to fix sslftp up. And as plain ftp
is quite unfriendly, lftp or so should be made to work with SSL for a
comfortable interface.
