A new version of lftp, 4.5.5-1, is available in the Cygwin distribution.
This is a new upstream release, with bug fixes.  Please see
http://lftp.yar.ru/news.html for the list of changes.

This release removes the dependency of lftp on perl.  lftp comes with a few
sample scripts that are written in Perl, but those have now been moved into
/usr/share/doc/lftp/examples, so they don't make cygport think that lftp
needs Perl to run.

lftp is a sophisticated file transfer program and ftp/http/bittorrent
client. It supports multiple network protocols.  It uses the readline
library for input, so it offers tab completion and command history.  It has
job control and bookmarks. It can mirror sites and transfer multiple files
in parallel. It keeps trying interrupted operations until it can complete
