It might help.
BTW, I've got a tool that does basically the same as makehistory does when
invoked with -S -I -O switches. My tool either retrieves articles
by history token or scans articles in news spool then parses out
Xref: field from article header then generates new uniover, overview,
and history records.
The tool is rather raw but it worked for me so far.
It's available at ftp://ftp.glas.net/users/ilya/tools/inn/ov/makeoverview.c
