It's part of the 'os-utils' package.

In fact org-gnus wasn't even loaded. The reason was that XEmacs'
`defvaralias' (line 41) doesn't accept an optional third argument as
Emacs does. Once this had been fixed, org-gnus was loaded without
problems and worked right away.

While testing the new version I've noticed that links are now made up of
<group>#<message-id> instead of <group>#<article number>, at least for
nnml groups. This means that links created with the new version are not
usable with older versions. And this might be a problem since the same set
of org files is often used on different computers with possibly
different versions of org-mode.
