I have never used fidogate, but have been told it is better then
ifgate which I am currently using. However, when I last tried to
install fidogate (IIRC potato version), the preinst and postinst
scripts were horrible, and wouldn't work properly unless you used
sendmail. I use Postfix...

I think you need to find out eactly what fidogateconfig
means when it gives that error. It might be something else
has gone wrong, and fidogateconfig is just displaying a generic
error message.

I doubt that fidonetconfig is looking for the inn binary, more likely,
it is looking for a copy of ctlinnd.

If fidogateconfig is a binary executable, I would try
strace -o/tmp/out -ff /usr/sbin/fidogateconfig

If it is a sh executable, I would try
sh -x /usr/sbin/fidogateconfig

I think you should be able to do something similar with perl to, but
not sure what the best way would be.
