Default FETCH_CMD="ftp -A $1" fails. Why?

I wasn't able to fetch files for ports without -A on ftp. I'm not too sure why FETCH_CMD="ftp -A $1" doesn't work, but the exact same command (ftp -A $1) in a script that FETCH_CMD is led to works. Any ideas?

You are forced to use active mode either due to your choice of server or your particular network infrastructure.

Your command fails because it does not fit the shell command used by pkg_add. See the second sentence for the environment variable in the man page.
