No, since we need to test the FTP parts of curl we need full control over the
FTP parts in order to make it send weirdnesses and fail etc when we want to
and make sure curl deals with it. That would be complicated to add to standard

The test ftp server is an FTP server implemented entirely in perl (by me).

It is a bug mentioned in KNOWN_BUGS. All those --disable-* options are very
rarely used and I never test them, so they all tend to have a varying degree
of functionality.
