Well, dselect says that trn depends on inews, which inewsinn provides and
leafnode doesn't. Just in case I tried forcing a removal of inewsinn, but
when I tried posting I just got an error message along the lines of "inews
not found".

I also tried installing nn, which doesn't have this dependency; when I
start nn, I get

Connecting to NNTP server localhost...
Connecting to NNTP server localhost... ok (posting is allowed)
NNTP 502 Syntax error response: 502

at which point the program terminates.
