It looks like poster 'vui' sussed it... according to this post here, 10.2.2 doesn't like empty server_args statements in the configuration file. He (or she) suggested deleting this line, however you can add an arguement as well and all will work fine. I added "-c /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf" as suggested in a previous reply and it work out groovy. That's what I get for being lazy about configuration.

I had the same kind of issue and I bypassed it by replacing ftpd in /usr/libexec by proftpd renamed to ftpd.
It's like a "tank" method but it runs.
For the argument I simply removed it so the ftp file in xinetd.d looks like :
service ftp
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/libexec/ftpd
groups = yes
flags = REUSE
The only issue remaining is the syslog which tell me this error when I start the share via the panel :
Dec 30 17:40:52 localhost xinetd[643]: Error reading included directory: /etc/xinetd.d [line=11]

Apart this, everything is OK and and may ftp server accept now passives connections on designed ports ;-)
