do you have /usr/local/etc/rc.d/vsftpd
and is it executable ?

afair the last version of vsftpd asks you before installing whether you
want to use the rc.d/ script or not

if you don't have this script, i've just copied it here :

grtjs, albi
gpg-key: lynx -dump http://scii.nl/~albi/gpg.asc | gpg --import
