    That line should already be in the proftpd.conf...just have to uncomment it.
    If you love something, emerge it

    This is what you need in your proftpd.conf

    Add the following line to it:

    # To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
    # directory, uncomment this line.
    DefaultRoot ~
