Thanks for all the good advice!

The solution for us was to revert back to a dynamically linked
'ls' command. To do this we needed the following:

        cp /usr/lib/* ~ftp/usr/lib
        cp /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ ~ftp/usr/lib
        cp /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ ~ftp/usr/lib
        cp /etc/nsswitch.conf ~ftp/etc

as well as the devices

        mknod ~ftp/dev/zero c 13 12
        mknod ~ftp/dev/ticotsord c 105 1
        mknod ~ftp/dev/tcp c 11 42
        mknod ~ftp/dev/udp c 11 41

Then placing 'ls' in ~ftp/bin on our Solaris 2.4 machine works!

I'm still trying to find a statically linked version that works,
since the above takes a lot more space...if I find a better way
I'll certainly post!

Thanks again to everyone who replied!
