Patch is attached.  The SBU on this package actually has come down on my 
system - from .38 to .25, but build size has increased to 9.7 MB roughly 
- install size is only a little more than 700KB, but the source dir is 
9MB after build.

The license text is definately still needed - libncftp is NOT a free 
library, but use of it for the NcFTP program itself is under the 
Clarified Artistic License.  Other use is free for 
educational/non-profit, or a $499 license fee otherwise.

Hope this helps!
