It's kind of working now, since the last update on ftp.archlinux.org, 
there is a current/os/x86_64/setup/ directory, it only misses 
pacman.pkg.tar.gz. I have a mirror here and I just upload 
ftp://xentac.net/amd64/current/setup/pacman.pkg.tar.gz into that dir and 
FTP install works like a charm.
Maybe a solution.
