I'm now running two leafnodes flawlessly on the same box. My former 
ignorance of inetd was the only stumbling-block. --prefix was 
sufficient without using --sysconfdir.

All the configuration files for the second installation (including 
users, moderators, local.groups) are in /usr/local/rap/etc/, while the 
other server is cheerfully still using /etc/leafnode/.

Addition to /etc/services:
nntp2 120/tcp

Addition to /etc/inetd.conf:
nntp2 stream tcp nowait news /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/rap/sbin/leafnode

Addition to news's crontab:
30 6 * * * /usr/local/rap/sbin/texpire
23 * * * * /usr/local/rap/sbin/fetchnews

With a little help on inetd and some careful reading of the leafnode  
documentation, it just works! All I have to do now is to try to 
separate the two sets of syslog entries into different files.

PJR :-)
