As a last step, run "make install."  But the locations are different,
quite apart from everything being under /usr/local instead of /usr,
which isn't important in this case.  [You can change that with

./configure --prefix=/usr , for example.

If you want to do that, from where you are now, run "make clean" to go
back to Square 1.]

Your config file is in /etc/leafnode, as before, and unchanged.  What
Version 1 puts in /var/spool/news is now in /var/spool/leafnode.  And
yes, you can just move the subdirectories to the new address, but I had
no real success with doing that.  I didn't think of
renaming /var/spool/news to /var/spool/leafnode. The first run
complains about a missing config file.  Just create it with the
"touch" command and set it to be owned by user and group news.  There is
a README file in the archive, and a man page. If your distro uses
systemd, the files for that are in the systemd subdirectory of the
