Would be nice if the package could be compiled with ssl support.

I have just installed libssl-dev and it compiled with ssl enabled without
any further change.

It is currently impossible to enable the ssl support of gftp, due to
legal reasons ; the GPL license is not compatible with the OpenSSL one.

I will try to contact the upstream to ask him to modify a little the
license of gftp.

Bye,
Aurelien

Oh, I was not aware of this problem.

Would be great if you could do that. Perhaps he is not aware of the problem, too.

There is currently no ftp client in Debian with a gui frontend that
supports fpt-ssl, so it would be great to be able to use gftp.

I have reported the thing to the upstream author, he don't want to add
an exception to the license. However, he told me that a tls patch is
welcome.

I don't have the time nor the skills to do that currently.

Please have a look to the bug log, everything is explained. There is 
currently no support for SSL in gftp, that can be *legally* activated. 
Other distributions (almost all?) that are doing that are violating the 
GPL license.

As the main author of gftp does not want to relicense gftp because it's 
very hard to contact every contributor, the only solution is to write an 
SSL support using gnutls. Until now nobody have written it...
