Summary: NcFTP client should be included
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None

If someone wants to run "perl .MCPAN -e shell", the configuration part requires
ncftpget to be installed.
Now it requires these steps to get CPAN running:
1. searching for it on Google
2. download
3. unpack
3. "./configure"
4. "make"
5. "make install"
6. "whereis ncftpget"
7. type in "/usr/local/bin/ncftpget" in CPAN configuration prompt.

Therefore I suggest that the NcFTP client ( should
be included in the base distribution.
