First execute the following commands (replacing x.x.x by the version number you are installing):
Note that you have to copy bftpd.conf from the source directory to /etc manually if you are upgrading from a previous version, as 'make install' does not overwrite your existing configuration.
Note: If you want to use the 'tar.gz on-the-fly' feature of bftpd, you must grab the source code of the program "pax" and extract it into a subdirectory of the bftpd source directory. Then, instead of doing "./configure", do "./configure --enable-pax=pax-sourcedir --enable-libz". You must also have the library libz and its header file, /usr/include/zlib.h.
bftpd runs in either standalone or inetd mode.
