Might it be possible and/or worthwhile for you to share what is required
to make Pan compile and run in, say, Leopard 10.5.8 and Snow Kitteh?

As for what other newsreaders linux users are using, I have begun to
wonder whether they even do, which is odd. There's Knode, but it's a
featherweight compared to Pan, most especially when downloading headers
from multimillion-header newsgroups.

Pan is the best newsreader I've ever used period, counting even Newsbin
Pro and NewsLeecher on WinOS, let alone Agent. I did like Gravity but
that was Early Paleolithic.
