ProFTPD instructions out of order

Description

The ProFTPD page contains a security related block of steps to do, but it is located before the main installation. Unfortunately, this block includes the step:

ln -s false /usr/lib/proftpd/proftpdshell

This command fails, because the target directory has not been created yet (it's created during "make install"). Also, the link is created to "false", which does not exist. It should be created to "/bin/false", or if the intent is for the symlink to be broken on purpose, then the target should be some name that is not a normally installed binary.
