I think it works without that patch even, as I didn't rename it on my
local copy. Will remove it and try to build again just to make sure.

Same here. This patch could be avoided if we disable it's
--disable-cap feature, that skips that lib build. Since I don't use
it, I have no idea what it does. From proftpd website, it seams that
it does some magic to increase security, so I thought it was best to
apply Gentoo's patch, taken directly from latest portage.

Many probably use proftpd for something, as it's in atngw100_defconfig
