The manpage says:
~ftp/bin Make this directory owned by “root” and unwritable by
anyone (mode 511). This directory is optional unless you

to run (the ls(1) command exists as a built-in). Any
programs in this directory should be mode 111 (executable
So it looks like there is a way to call certain commands stored under: ~ftp/bin
