> Exactly that seems to have happened, what we call a "stealth update." The port was updated to version 3.2.4 in r66566 on 2010-04-16, but the distfiles on the FTP server date from 2010-05-16. So the port needs to be updated. Please file a ticket in the issue tracker.

The old distfile, with the checksums listed in the port, can be downloaded here for comparison:

Compared to that version, the ChangeLog in the new version has this added entry:, 2010-05-16

   + Fixed a bug in Ncftpget/put/ls which could ignore the username (-u)
     and password (-p) command line parameters.

So really this appears to be version now. Why they didn't name the file that I don't know.
