 Log Message:
 Update pure-ftpd to 1.0.27.
 Based on PR#42711 by Fredrik Pettai.
 Pkgsrc changes:
 * Version 1.0.27:
  - IPv6 connections are accepted again (regression from version 1.0.26)
  - SSLv3 renegociation has been disabled
  - .pureftpd-upload-* files can be deleted by users with no quota.
  - The server can be forced to shut down on iPhone.
 * Version 1.0.26:
  - Fix incompatibilities with Cyberduck and dramatically speed up directory
 listings and transfers when TLS is enabled with some other clients like LFTP.
  - Allow authentication of non-chrooted users again. It was a regression
 from version 1.0.25. Spotted by Juergen Daubert.
 * Version 1.0.25:
  - The FTP server can now be built as a library for iPhone and iPod Touch.
  - Display symbolic links in the MSLD command as symbolic links, unless the
 broken clients mode is enabled, just like STAT/LIST/NLST.
  - Enhanced compatibility with gcc 2.x and with custom installation paths.
  - Fix packaging issues, especially when the server isn't installed in the
 default paths
  - Downloads now require less CPU and less memory.
  - Fix an infinite loop that could lead to a client process burning a CPU
 core if the client didn't disconnect properly. Reported by Thomas Min and
 Margus Kaidja.
  - Handle fake download resumes the traditional way for the sake of being
 compatible with weird clients that insist on doing that.
  - The group name is now always displayed instead of the gid when it matches 
 primary user group.
 * Version 1.0.24:
  - When using LDAP in BIND mode, empty passwords are refused. Reported by
 Henning Brauer.
 * Version 1.0.23:
  - The LDAP schema has been fixed.
  - LDAP authentication through binding is now possible in addition to
 passwords. This allows for the FTP server to run with an unprivileged LDAP
  - In LDAP objects, the "enabled" value is accepted again as a FTPStatus
  - Privilege separation is now enabled by default.
  - The server should now properly compile on Solaris with privsep.
  - Charset conversions are properly made on directory names.
  - Transfers now handle every kind of disconnection.
  - More informative log messages for errors and activity reporting.
  - Virtual quotas are way more reliable and uploads are interrupted as soon as
 quotas are exceeded.
  - Atomic uploads are only used when necessary and only if --notruncate is
  - Dangling .pureftpd-upload files should be a thing of past.
  - Enhanced conformance with RFCs and better compatibility with FTP clients.
  - Improved SSL performance, compatibility and commands support.
  - By default, up to 10000 files per directory can be listed instead of 2000.
  - ALLO can now tell clients whether an upload would blow quotas before the
 upload actually starts.
  - PAM is now enabled by default on OSX.
  - Switch euid to the _pure-ftpd account (unless it's nonexistent) in the
 privsep process.
  - --without-banner is not necessary any more. Having a cookie file
 (--fortunefile=...) automatically disables the default banner, thus allowing
 full customization of the welcome banner.
  - ./configure --localstatedir is now honored in order to change the
 run-time directory.
  - Support for building a FTPS (implicit SSL/TLS) server, using
 * Version 1.0.22:
  - the LDAP authentication backend now supports TLS encryption.
  - TLS encryption is supported on data channels.
  - downloads require way less CPU time on platforms with slow mmap() calls.
  - MySQL 5+ stored procedures can now be used in the authentication process.
  - time zones issues should be fixed for good.
  - on-demand directories can now be created with any set of permissions.
  - password scrambling of MySQL 5+ is now supported.
  - a catalan translation has been contributed.
  - spurious disconnections due to some clients keepalive tricks have
 been fixed.
  - custom authentication handlers are now informed about the encryption
 status of the session.
  - standard-conformance and compatibility with several clients have improved.
  - large files are now supported by default.
  - enhanced support for Solaris.
  - a bunch of bug fixes, optimizations and compatibility with newer
 libraries and operating system versions.
  - "ftp" and "anonymous" user names can have passwords if the -E switch (no
 anonymous logins) is specified.
  - in compatibility mode, non-dangling symbolic links are now displayed as
 if they were regular files/directories.
  - --with-everything now includes privsep.
