I maintain a pkgsrc package for NetBSD:
flnews 1.1.0 will be part of the upcoming 2022Q2 release.

Build was successful on SmartOS (Solaris based) too:

Some notes for other operating systems, even if there are currently no
binary packages available for them:

On macOS flnews can be used with a Cocoa GUI:
(FLTK can also render color emojis with the Cocoa backend)
The application bundle from Dennis Preiser:
does no longer work on machines with M1 processor. Dennis has provided
an updated bundle that will be available on the homepage soon.

On OpenBSD flnews can use the LibreSSL library from the base system.
The new API from LibreSSL 3.5.0 is supported since flnews 1.1.0.
TLSv1.3 should work.

On Windows flnews needs a POSIX API (e.g. Cygwin, Interix or WSL).
I got success reports that it runs with Cygwin+X11 and WSL+X11.
In theory it should be possible to compile FLTK with the native Windows
backend too (to get a native Windows GUI with no need for an X server).
AFAIK nobody has tested this option yet.

In general flnews tries to support old operating systems for which
FLTK still builds (back to AIX 5.1, HP-UX 11.11, NetBSD 2.0, Solaris 7
and GNU/Linux with kernel 2.2).
Old compilers are also supported (back to GCC 2.91 and SunPro compilers
from the last century).
