No, I did not touch configure yet.

If I understand you correctly you want to add an option --httpdir=DIR
that overrides the value of $INN::Config::pathhttp?
This can get confusing since there already is
   --htmldir=DIR          html documentation [DOCDIR]

Hmm. On Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora pathnews resolves to "/usr/lib/news"
while pathlog is set to "/var/log/news".

Anyway, for the subdirectory Apache defaults to "/htdocs/", Debian and
Fedora use "/var/www/", and web hosters often extend that scheme to
/var/www/ IMHO the most consistent option would be
   --httpdir=DIR, $pathhttp and pathnews/http
   --wwwdir=DIR, $pathhttp and pathnews/www
also looks acceptable.
