No.  It looks to see if it was invoked as /etc/postinstall/lftp.sh, and
if so assumes a "no" answer to the "Overwrite existing /etc/lftp.conf?"
question.  It does print some installation chatter to stdout, but I
believe that's okay.

I have no particular attachment to this script.  I'd be just as happy
with the simple version I mentioned above, but decided to leave it since
it was already there.
