Due to my complete ignorance I have no idea what a reasonably large
number might be. So I just chose an arbitrary value (9999). I was then
able to build and install leafnode and it works after a fashion.
However, the texpire program for expiring old news items seems to hang
(so does the "su" command when I try "su news").
I don't know what the usual procedure for this kind of issues is. Should
I file a bug to the Debian BTS or is it more appropriate to report them
