This shows a big problem: Ftape doesn't know that you have
CONFIG_PNP_PARPORT enabled. The method ft_parport_probe_one is only
used for the non parport case.
Have you set this option in your kernel configuration? Is
/usr/src/linux (or whatever the variable in MCONFIG points to) the
right directory, where you recompiled the kernel? And did you "make
distclean" and recompile ftape _after_ compiling the kernel?
