No it's not.  Look again:

    [news at piper news]$ innconfval -p | grep -i lib 
    $mta = '/usr/lib/sendmail -oi %s';
    $innwatchlibspace = 25000;

Now run this little perl script:

    [news at piper news]$ cat
    require "/home/news/lib/";

    print "newslib = $inn::newslib\n";
    print "pathlib = $inn::pathlib\n";
    print "version = $inn::version\n";
    [news at piper news]$ ./
    newslib = 
    pathlib = 
    version = INN 2.2.1 25-Aug-1999
    [news at piper news]$
