Would like to evaluate this ftp proxy on FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE but although it 
makes cleanly, when I go to run it I get a logged error message:

Aug 21 13:16:32 [67924]: Could not change the EUID to 65534: Operation not 

and the program quits.  The program is:

-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  117644 Aug 21 12:43 /usr/local/sbin/jftpgw

and it is started by root then switched to nobody/nogroup.

Any way I can get around this?
