Did you read the documentation that comes with it?

Unpack the source to some directory, say ~/build:
tar xfvz ~/down/pftpfxp-v0.11.4mew6.tgz
Enter the directory: cd pftp-mew
Configure the sources: ./configure

You will want the output to contain the path to your SSL directory in order to have a fully working TLS/SSL-enabled build of pftp-mew. If all goes well the output of the command above will look something like this:
Code:
pFTP configure utility by HoE...
Platform = Linux
Using make = gmake
OpenSSL dir = /usr
Done, you can do "gmake static" or "gmake dynamic" now...
If it doesn't find OpenSSL you need to install the OpenSSL development packages. Your distribution should provide them.
So type gmake dynamic to build the program. It will take a little while.
When done, su to root and copy the "pftp" executable that was created to /usr/local/bin. Type exit to exit superuser mode.

Copy the folder (as yourself, not root) ".pftp" which is in the pftp-mew directory to your home directory: cp -R .pftp ~
Go to ~/.pftp and edit the config file to suit your preferences and setup.

Like I said in my post above - you need the SSL development packages. It contains the header files and related information needed to build applications that use SSL. The common SSL package is just a runtime that allows applications compiled with SSL support to run.
