As far as I know, you can only achieve that by hacking the ftpd itself. If
you want users to only be able to see a certain set of files, you should
create a user with ftproot in an empty directory which only contains the
files they are allowed to see/use.
Well, I was just curious, since the option to hide dot files is widely
available in most FTP daemons, like vsftpd:
However, it seems, not in FreeBSD's default ftpd?
