many thanks it gives me some ideas to look at.

Gentoo has xemacs-base as 2.19 and gnus has been working fine in the past,

has xemacs-base as 2.19 13 Jan 09 This could hardly be called recent
being a year old and is straight from the xemacs site. What version is
the latest xemacs-base? However it is masked in gentoo which would be
using 2.10 in the stable branch.

I have just downloaded the xemacs-base 2.19 from the above

timer-funcs.el is there but I don't see mm-util.el or utf7.el

are they supposed to be in xemacs-base ?

I have /usr/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/gnus
which has mm-util.el and utf7.el but as I copied some of the files over
that were missing I can not be sure if they were there before

I will need to unmerge somethings as it is getting difficult to
determine what has been added by gentoo and what manualy added.
