i've just released lukemftp 1.1:

fyi: lukemftp is a port of netbsd's ftp client to other systems using
`autoconf'. this means lukemftp will work on older netbsd's, solaris,
linux, etc...

new stuff:

This is a brief description of the new features and fixes added to
lukemftp-1.1 since the release of lukemftp-1.0.  As always, the manual
page (src/ftp.cat1) is the place to look for complete descriptions.

* Implemented `set prompt' and `set rprompt', which allow you to
  configure the prompt and right side prompt (respectively).
  Some tcsh(1) style `%' escapes are supported, including
  %. %c %/ %m %M %n

* Implemented restarting of file:/// and non-proxied http:// URLs
  (using -R)

* Correctly parse remote ports given as numbers that don't appear in
  the services(5) database.

* Prevent a couple of minor memory leaks

* Add missing compilation setting for SOCKS
