Hello every thing is all right!

Port security/heimdal installs its own ftpd with its appropriate manpages.
Whenever I read the manpage, I got this heimdal-installed one and so, the whole
configuration for FreeBSD's own ftpd daemon was bullshit according to the
heimdal's version. especially the missing option "-D" (necessary for FreeBSD's
ftpd going into daemon mode) and much more crucial, -a, which reflects the IP
address listening on for FreeBSD's ftpd and for heimdal's one reflecting the
authentication method (-a plain for plaintext). 

So, this maybe for the record. I guess in rare caeses others could run into
this trap, too.
