}just noticed the second goof up here                ^^ should only be /

In normal use '//' collapses to '/', and this would seem to be true
with NetBSD's ftp, as well.  (This is not true of URLs grabbed with lynx
via http:// with '//' immediately following the hostname.)  Anyway, it
should probably be fixed.
