Ok, let's wait a day, then you can have it.

No, they aren't really bad, I just would have had no chance to test
what I'd change.

Seems like some permission problem (x access missing for some parent

Yep :-) BTW, I'm going to file another wishlist bug about something
that should be done sometimes: nntp needs a libdbz.a (statically) which
is built from cnews. So you can build nntp only if you have a compiled
cnews tree in a sibling dir. This is some unfortunate constellation
for porting to different archs. The proper solution would be to make a
cnews-dev (or libdbz-dev) package from libdbz.a and its header so that
nntp can be built the "normal way" if cnews-dev installed.
