ncftp has a recursive option that's passable[1] if all you have to use is
ftp:

[adam@milf:~]$ ncftpput -u adam -R milf.ihug.com.au newtree/ downloads/
Password: 
/home/adam/downloads/SpiralSynth-0.1.0.tar.gz:         40.93 kB    1.27 MB/s  
/home/adam/downloads/icqlib-1.0.0.tar.gz:             244.10 kB    2.45 MB/s  
[..]
[adam@milf:~]$ ls newtree/
SpiralSynth-0.1.0.tar.gz
icqlib-1.0.0.tar.gz

[1] I'd rather use scp, or ssh/rsync, etc. :)
