Use something like this:
access default {
        users: luser
        newsgroups: *,!junk,!control,!control.*
auth aqq {
        hosts: <your-hosts>
        default: luser

What shell do you use?
In /usr/local/news/.cshrc:
setenv PATH /usr/local/news/bin:/bin:/usr/bin
In /usr/local/news/.profile:
PATH=/usr/local/news/bin:/bin:/usr/bin; export PATH
