Are you sure you need it? FTP should work out of the box on BSD boxes, since 
by default FTP_PASSIVE_MODE=yes is set in environment. No ftp-proxy should be 
needed for outgoing traffic.
Incoming is a different story.

If you disable this ftp-proxy setup, can you fetch a package from one of the 
FreeBSD ftp servers?

I have a net with pf nat, so if you have specific servers that don't work for 
you, maybe I can see if those don't work for me either.

Any specific ftp-client program? For me, the default ftp client, ncftp3, 
browser ftp and fetch all work.
