I changed the line in /etc/inetd.conf to:
ftp	stream	tcp	nowait	root	/usr/libexec/ftpd	ftpd -d -l -l

and in /etc/syslog.conf:
ftp.debug                                       /var/log/ftp

So i can see every 'movement' made by the ftp 'users' - it generates a
lot of data though, so you shouldn't forget to rotate the logfile every
once in a while :)
