It has no permission to write into a directory that is owned by user
root, group wheel. Try chgrp news /var/spool/news ; chmod g+w
/var/spool/news -- or configure the lockfile to a different location.

Note 1.9.26 is outdated, use 1.9.33.

If you built from the OpenBSD port, please contact the port maintainer
for help.
