update INN to version 2.5.4. Excerpt from the upstream release announcement:

Changes in 2.5.4

  * An up-to-date control.ctl file is provided with this release.  You
    should manually update your control.ctl file with the new information
    recorded about Usenet hierarchies.

  * A test has been improved in innwatch.ctl so that innwatch no longer
    throttles innd when no overview directory exists.  You should manually
    update your innwatch.ctl file to get this improvement.

  * Fixed a long-standing limitation on how controlchan and pgpverify were
    checking the signer of control messages.  They now properly handle the
    case of several UIDs being defined on a single PGP key, as well as the
    presence of spaces into UIDs.  In previous versions of INN, a few
    valid control messages got ignored because of that limitation
    (fido.ger.* and grisbi.* were for instance impacted).

  * As the name of the radius.conf configuration file shipped with INN for
    the nnrpd authenticator against a RADIUS server conflicts with the
    libradius package, this file is renamed to inn-radius.conf (innupgrade
    takes care of the rename during the update).

  * The attributes hash is now accessible to nnrpd Perl posting filter.
    As a result, filter_nnrpd.pl can make use of it.  Only authentication
    and access Perl hooks could previously use the attributes hash.
    Thanks to Steve Crook for this addition.

  * INN now properly builds fine with flex 2.5.36 (this version introduced
    a change of type for a variable used by INN).

  * When using funnel feeds, innfeed log files were open forever, which
    resulted in empty log files, once rotated by scanlogs.  innfeed now
    reopens its log files upon receiving a HUP signal; this signal is in
    particular sent by scanlogs during log rotation.  Thanks to Florian
    Schlichting for the patch.

  * Exploder and process channels are now reopened when "ctlinnd
    flushlogs" is used.  Otherwise, they could hold open an already
    deleted errlog file.  The issue affected in particular controlchan or
    ninpaths, running as such channels.

  * Fixed a buffer overflow when using imapfeed with more than a million
    commands during the same IMAP session.  Thanks to David Binderman for
    the bug report.

  * Fixed a segfault occurring in innd on systems where time_t is a 64-bit
    integer.  Thanks to S.P. Zeidler for the patch.

  * Fixed a segfault occurring in nnrpd when a res block was used in
    readers.conf without the program: key.

  * Fixed an issue where users were denied posting because of an
    overlapping buffer copy in a check nnrpd was doing.  Thanks to Florian
    Schlichting for the patch.

  * Fixed a regression that occurred in INN 2.5.3 regarding the path used
    by default by pullnews for its configuration file.  Instead of looking
    in the running user's home directory, it was looking in the *pathnews*
    directory set in inn.conf.  Thanks to Tony Evans for the bug report.

  * When neither wget nor ncftpget nor ncftp was found at configure time,
    the path to the simpleftp substitution program shipped with INN was
    not properly set in innshellvars, innshellvars.pl, and the
    "INN::Config" Perl module.  Thanks to Christian Garbs for the bug
    report.

  * ckpasswd no longer tries to use the ndbm compatibility layer provided
    by Berkeley DB if Berkeley DB has been built without ndbm support.
    Also add support for gdbm libraries in ckpasswd.

  * Fixed a Perl warning in inncheck; using "defined(@array)" has been
    deprecated since Perl 5.16.

  * Fixed the occurrence of an unexpected "cant select" error generated by
    innd.  Thanks to Paul Tomblin for having caught that long-standing
    issue.

  * When building INN with Berkeley DB support, no longer add -L/usr/lib
    to the linker include flags; unconditionally adding it may break the
    build on systems using lib32 and lib64 directories.

  * On a fresh INN install, motd.innd and motd.nnrpd are no longer
    installed by default.  Instead, samples for these files are provided
    in *pathetc*, named differently so that their default contents are not
    displayed to news clients before they get customised.

  * Other minor bug fixes and documentation improvements (like the
    addition in the readers.conf man page of the log: and program:
    parameters in res blocks, and the include directive).
