Actually, you could just get slurp. (archie for it)  It runs fine under 
FreeBSD.

A side note:  I believe slurp and suck both issue NEWNEWS commands to
the server which has LARGE impact on the server (at least INN).
I've gone to psl which is a perl slurp and it uses .newsrc type files
to retrieve news the same way your reader would (MUCH less overhead).
