I have PKG_PATH ending in .../i386/All

(so without a trailing /).

I have ftp_proxy set to "ftp_proxy="

Now the effect is that a "pkg_add mypackage" will call

ftp -detv<blablabla>/i386/All/

which does not work (connection times out).

FTP_PASSIVE_MODE is set to "yes".

If I manually try the URL and remove the trailing "/" that pkg_add 
appends, ftp at least fetches the (html) directory listing.

Now that? Our proxy is current squid on FreeBSD, what's the problem here, 
can I force pkg_add not to append the "/"?
