There are 3 copies of libstorage.a on the newsserver - one in
/usr/local/news/lib, and one in each of the build directories for
INN-2.3.0 and INN-2.3.1. The one in /usr/local/news/lib is the same as
the one in the build directory for INN-2.3.1.

I noticed however, that libinn.so.2 and libstorage.so.2 were symbolic
links to libinn.so.2.0.0.OLD and libstorage.so.2.0.0.OLD - I changed
these to point to libinn.so.2.0.0 and libstorage.so.2.0.0, and ran
ldconfig, which changed them back to the .OLD versions. After removing
the .OLD files and running ldconfig again, the symbolic links were
changed to point to the new versions, and expireover now seems to run

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
