Sure... I have compiled NNTPCACHE on a Debian box. Just follow the steps
(there is a readme on how to install it.).

The problem really I have encountered on it is configuring the
configuration files on it.

NNTPCACHE is really a cool program. It's a proxy like squid, but instead
of proxying html, jpgs, etc., It proxies nntp newsgroups. It saves you
enormous bandwitdth just using this one. This baby can even filter spams
and connect to multiple nntpservers.

A little hitch on this one is.... For non profit organizations and
educational institutions, it's free. For commercial use, you have to pay.
Therefore, It's not exactly free. 

Anybody care to compile it as a .deb file?
