Description of problem:
vsftpd when installed has its configuration file in /etc/vsftp/vsftpd.conf. No
xinetd.d/ entry was supplied with the rpm.
When using the example entry for xinetd from /usr/share/vsftpd-1.1.3
it didn't read the config file properly.
The fix is to either supply an xinet.d/vsftp entry where the location
of the configuation file is added as argument to vsftp, or the config
file needs to move back to /etc/vsftpd.conf, or one could use a symlink
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do fresh install
2. add xinetd.d/vsftp from example dir
3. Change the banner in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
3. restart xinetd
4. connect to ftp server and see default banner instead of your own
