This hit me fairly hard as well when I first started using CentOS, as it had 
become a good standby.  Once I discovered lftp, it was fairly simple to see 
why it wasn't included.  Lftp seems to mimic all the behavior that was useful 
from ncftp and drop everything that was painful.  It also includes the 
equivalent of ncftpget with lftpget, which IMHO really does make it a drop in
