First I recommend you run ./configure --help and check whether any of the options will be useful to you.

Then it's just a matter of running the usual:

make install


make install should normally be performed as root, but it's recommended to do the first two stages as a normal user in a directory you own.


It's recommended that you include INN's binaries in your PATH before running configure, if they're not in one of the standard branches or in one of /usr/lib/news/bin, /usr/local/news/bin or /var/lib/news/bin. This will help newsstar decide the PATH variable to use at run-time.
