I'm not sure if this is the most perfect place for this question, but it sort of
relates to some possible updates to the stable branch.

I noticed that the proftpd port is still set at 1.0.0, when a 1.0.3pl1 and a
1.1.3pre1 (development branch) are available.  As I am using proftpd here I
figured I'd just manually update.  While 1.0.3pl1 compiled fine (with one new
minor correction and using the 1.0.0 port patches as a base), 1.1.3pre1 is
giving me some problem.  It seems that as of 1.1.1 (I believe), proftpd is using
the glob() function.  Unfortunately, while they include glob.c and glob.h with
proftpd, configure sees that FreeBSD already has the function (and include
file), and tries to use it.  The problem is that the glob.h (with proftpd) is
dated 1997, while the FreeBSD one is dated 1993.  (I'm using the copyright date
at the top for reference)

Looking through the code, it seems this function has changed a bit.  What's the
possibility of this being updated in stable?  Is the new glob() function from
gcc 2.8.x?

Thanks for your help.
