Looks as if it is a FreeBSD port issue .

I did of manual command line using su -m 

and it fixed part of the problem.

I have to run

su -m news -c '/usr/local/news/bin/makehistory -O -x -F '

and

su -m news -c '/usr/local/news/bin/ctlinnd renumber "" '

while INND is running to check on updated newsfeed.
