Thanks for all the suggestions.

Slackware does not use ftp, only lftp. But, CentOS has both. The ftp client there acted properly.

For my purposes, I'll just use lftp in a terminal & forgo dired.

AS Yuri said, "-v" is not an lftp option. So I would set
ange-ftp-ftp-program-args to '() (or nil).

And there are more variables to adapt. For example, comint-prompt-regexp
in the internal ange-ftp buffer has the value "^ftp> ", which doesn't
fit to lftp. This is hard-coded in function internal-ange-ftp-mode.

Finally, you'll need to debug ange-ftp in order to let it run with lftp.
