Looks correct to me given your netinfo.

I don't understand this phrase.

Is 71 the numeric GROUP ID of the group "news"?

It should be, because ./configure uses "id -g $RUNAS_USER" to find out
the group ID.

Can you show the output of these commands:

id news
id -g news
id -gn news

Leafnode will use the user "news"'s primary group ID (id -g) for its
RUNAS_GROUP, so perhaps your netinfo is inconsistent. The primary gid
(group ID) of the user "news" must be the group ID of the group named
