If ftpd is started from inetd, then one can use the /etc/inetd.conf and
/etc/services to specify which port the ftpd is listening on. 

If they are started from /etc/runlevel.conf, how can I specify which port
the ftpd is listening on? In /etc/inetd.conf, one can also specify how to
launch the ftpd, which switches to use, etc. how can I do this with
/etc/runlevel.conf? I hope not directly fiddling with /etc/init.d/wu-ftpd.
