From the website: <c&p>FXP.One is a whole new system to FTP and FXP. It is not just another client. It is in fact a very flexible FTP/FXP engine. This engine does all the hard work with dealing with FTP sites. Built into that is a very simple but powerful API protocol. The idea is then, if someone wants to do an FTP, or FXP, client they can then make one without the FTP hassles. Currently there already are multiple clients. They all talk to the FXP.One engine, and you can interchange the clients.
That is, use one client to create and queue up some items and start the queue process. At a later time, a different client, from a different location can connect and check on the progress of that queue, change it, add to it and so on.</c&p>
Attached is a proposed ebuild for fxp-one. It uses a ncurses use flag to decide whether to build the shipped ncurses client (FXP.c0ne).
The configure script uses some automagic dependencies on ncurses/cdk, which I tried to disable by "injecting" a cached value set to 'no' (something I read in another bug here on bgo). It works, yet looks ugly, but I'm far from an expert on autoconf, so I didn't know how to patch the configure.ac properly.
Unfortunately I'm not sure which version of openssl is needed, and I didn't know how to find out.
The ebuild installs fine on my (hardened) amd64, engine and ncurses client have both been tested and seem to work fine too.

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.
Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The
sunrise overlay is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)
Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us.
We anticipate a large number of requests in a short time.
