The attached patch includes the GPL code from ProFTPd.

Can people please check that it works, particularly on different 
platforms to Linux?  I hacked around with the compatibility code a bit 
to simplify things and to adapt it from the autoconf system that 
ProFTPd uses, but I can't test it on anything other than my Linux 

Windows doesn't use this file, so no need to worry about that.

Also, the ProFTPd license has an exemption for distributing with 
OpenSSL.  Obviously, that doesn't apply to kdeinit.  I seem to remember 
that such exemptions can be discarded by redistributors, but can 
someone confirm this?  If so, I'll get rid of it, because it's 
pointless in this context.
