how about RN and Interactive?

I had this problem with news2.11 on a system running 386/ix, and
just today finished installing rn successfully myself.
to fix some problems with rn, all I did was add
to the start of the file (ngdata.c and term.c I think) and change the
references from "struct direct ..." to "struct dirent" wherever and
whenever they occurred. this seems to have worked fantastically.
for news2.11 I beleive all I did was to add
#include <sys/ptem.h>, though I suspect I had to do a few more things that
I really don't remember any more. sorry
as for all those statements that say:
file.c: ## extra tokens (ignored) after directive
these are a result of information on #endif and #else statements. 386/ix's
compiler doesn't like things like
#else !TIOCTL /* this is an extra token */
#endif TIOCTL /* this is an extra token */
the TIOCTL and !TIOCTL after #else and #endif are only commentary, and
come up as warnings to 386/ix cc. also
produces a similar warning. it doesn't like the semicolon.
I edited ALL occurances of these things out of all the .c and .h files
and recompiled everything without a single warning message, and the system
appears to be running very happily indeed right now!
