Ok, now innd is segfaulting on startup.  I don't know much about INN
internals, but I did manage to attach GDB (that was interesting).

#0  0x805e2a4 in SITEsetlist (patlist=0x812bbec, subbed=0x812b468 "",
    poison=0x812b828 "", poisonEntry=0x80ae51c) at newsfeeds.c:387
#1  0x805e563 in SITEparseone (Entry=0x80e2450 "ME", sp=0x80ae500,
    subbed=0x812b468 "", poison=0x812b828 "") at newsfeeds.c:500
#2  0x805f3b3 in SITEparsefile (StartSite=true) at newsfeeds.c:881
#3  0x8059b5c in ICDsetup (StartSites=true) at icd.c:91
#4  0x805b06c in main (ac=2, av=0xbffffe74) at innd.c:584

On further inspection, we see

(gdb) print Groups
$7 = (NEWSGROUP *) 0xffffffff

which surely isn't right, is it?

I'm going to try it again and step through in more detail this time...any
suggestions of where to look would be welcomed.
