I suspect you have not configured "news.daily" to be run out of cron -- 
there should never be entires more than one day old in $pathlog/news.

Examine INSTALL again for the crontab step.

($pathlog/news should be reset every night by the script, which will also 
do other important maintenance tasks.)

It's probably not required -- except for generating the daily reports -- 
but I don't know if it will work because of the way log rotation is 
implemented.  This is not recommended.
