Yes, but you'd have to modify the code for ftpd.  I doubt the FreeBSD 
project would accept such patches[1] as allowing anon users to modify 
file permissions is the sort of thing that can easily create subtle (and 
not so subtle!) security issues.

It may be easier to look at ftp daemons in the ports collection; one of 
them may be usable for you.

[1] This is me guessing, not speaking authoritatively.
