The server has the option, it's called "--without-ascii". But I think the putre-ftpd.conf file can vary from distro to distro, so I'm not sure what should be there. On a Debian Etch server I have, it has a directory instead of a configuration file, kind of like how Apache2 does it instead of Apache1's single file.
Read a bit more, and it seems like it's a compile option, not a runtime option. So I think you need to compile it yourself. Passing --without-ascii to ./configure should do it I think.
