The correct solution would be for ftp to never send the HTTP/1.1 header
since it obviously IS NOT HTTP/1.1-compliant.
RFC 2616 clearly states in section 3.6.1:
"All HTTP/1.1 applications MUST be able to receive and decode the
"chunked" transfer-coding, and MUST ignore chunk-extension extensions they
do not understand."
However, ftp has already been replaced in -CURRENT, so this applies only
to usr.bin/ftp/fetch.c on 4.X, but would
be a useful addition, especially in the face of the pending EOL of 4.X.
