I now wrote:

   If you want to do an in-place update of a leafnode version that has
   been previously installed by your distribution, you need to invoke
   "configure" with the --prefix=/usr or --prefix=/opt setting (dependent
   on the configuration of your distribution).

It might be a good idea to actually let configure look for an old
version of leafnode by itself. There might be several ways to do that,
but the most obvious one would probably be to look into various directories
or evaluate the inetd.conf entry.

BTW, it seems that thanks to the work of Joerg Dietrich Leafnode-1.9.5
will be able to handle capitalized newsgroups names quite correctly :-)
