Default Possible to run multiple instances of ftp-proxy on boot?

I recently upgraded (from 3.7) to 4.2 and ftp-proxy is no longer run from inetd. What I'm curious about is how to start multiple instances...

For example, I have 2 machines I want to forward FTP traffic to which is behind my pf firewall:

--- from /etc/rc.conf.local ---
ftpproxy_flags="-R -p 21 -b"
ftpproxy_flags="-R -p 21 -b"
I can manually start both instances, but if I reboot the machine, or run the /etc/rc script manually, only the last instance comes up:

fw# lsof -ni:21
ftp-proxy 23505 proxy    3u  IPv4 0xfffffe8009fd5000      0t0  TCP (LISTEN)

What's the proper way to accomplish this? I'm hoping I don't have to hack a script together to do this. inetd worked great in this instance, and I hesitate saying that because I'm not a big inetd fan in general

Any help appreciated!
