I faced the very same problem some time ago. When working from scratch, 
you can either build the SFTP subsystem from OpenSSH without installing 
the rest (it has very few dependencies from the main package) or work with 
rjk-sftpserver from http://www.greenend.org.uk/rjk/sftpserver/ - but YMMV, 
and I don't think there are any premade solutions.

Best regards
