           Summary: ProFTPD instructions out of order
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: SVN
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: kpfleming at linuxfromscratch.org
         QAContact: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

The ProFTPD page contains a security related block of steps to do, but it is
located before the main installation. Unfortunately, this block includes the step:

ln -s false /usr/lib/proftpd/proftpdshell

This command fails, because the target directory has not been created yet (it's
created during "make install"). Also, the link is created to "false", which does
not exist. It should be created to "/bin/false", or if the intent is for the
symlink to be broken on purpose, then the target should be some name that is not
a normally installed binary.
