As far as NetBSD's ftp server, it wasn't just lynx. Please try it

It was a bug in ftpd.
Basically, we were always closing the data connection, even in
circumstances where we shouldn't have.
This caused problems with lynx & netscape which only send PASV/EPSV
when absolutely necessary, whereas our ftp client sent it before every
request that needs a data connection.
I've fixed the ftpd on ftp.netbsd.org, and I'll commit a fix to the
source once the cvs server is accessable again :/
