It seems that when ftp is build from pkgsrc's bootstrap on Mac OS X, it 
doesn't work with IPv6:

/usr/local/bin/ftp -a
230 Guest login ok, access restrictions apply.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp> ls
ftp: bind: Can't assign requested address

/usr/local/bin/ftp -a -4
ftp> ls
227 Entering Passive Mode (204,152,190,13,244,213)
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for '/bin/ls'.
total 22

Of course, Mac OS X's ftp works fine with IPv6.

OS X 10.3.5, pkgsrc from today.
