Package ProFTPD using DSO (Dynamic Shared Objects) support.


I’ve created a patch that changes how we package ProFTPD.
Currently ProFTPD is packaged by compiling modules statically into the binary, depending on PKG_OPTIONS selected.
With this patch modules would become loadable from the configuration file which has benefits for users of binary packages.
This allows us to build and include more modules by default or split them into separate packages.
Other systems like FreeBSD and Debian also package ProFTPD this way.

I have started testing on SmartOS, NetBSD and OS X and most things seem to work but this is still ongoing.

So I’d like to get some feedback on the attached patch.
Depending on that I’d also like opinions if this can still go in so close to the freeze or if to better wait.


Best regards,
