I was able to take the source RPM mentioned earlier and update it to 
build 0.139.  The result has some quirks I was not used to, like 
"remembering" the last newsgroup I used, but it does work OK, including 
SSL.  You can find the specfile I used at:


My build was under CentOS 6 (6.3 to be precise) 64-bit, I haven't tried 
any others.  You will have to download the pan sources, but that 
shouldn't be too hard.  Use rpmbuild (rpmbuild -bb pan.spec) and it 
should create a usable RPM, assuming you have the prerequisites 
installed.  If not, rpmbuild will tell you what you need to install.

No warranty is expressed or implied, no assurance of usability is 
provided, etc.  Like any open-source project, if you break it you own 
both pieces.  All I know is that it works for me.
