Files in /var/ftp/etc directory.

This is probably a dumb question; however, since I don't know the
answer I figured I might as well ask.

On a new installation of FreeBSD-7.2, I opted to set up an anonymous
FTP server. I just noticed that there are three files in the '/etc'

1) ftpmold
2) group
3) pwd.db

I know what the first one is, but what are the other two for? They are
visible and down loadable to any visitor who accesses the site. Is this
normal or is this something I should be concerned about? Can I just
delete the two files I am unsure of?
