I followed the suggestion.  Was very easy to configure, and wasn't to
hard to complie, after I changed a bug in the Makefile (1.0 had the bug,
but 0.8 di not).  Works fine with trn, but if I try to run nn i get back
$ nn
could not fetch active file

I don't know if it is a problem with leafnode or nn, as I can get the
active file with 'list' or 'list active'.  Any thoughts on why?
