Yes. Many servers disable NEWNEWS because it's very expensive in
old server implementations.  I'm surprised that fetchnews
actually issues NEWNEWS. All recent beta versions have an #ifdef
NOTYET and #if 0 around it (and never call donewnews()).

No, using a recent beta will help.

Yes, that is naive. Multiline responses are terminated by a dot.

You said you don't have automake installed. Fix that. I don't
agrre with the other opinioned posted here that your pcre
library is too old. Actually it looks like it's recent but
NEW_PCRE_COMPILE isn't defined in config.h for some reason.
