FreeBSD inetd has tcp_wrappers functionality built in, so you don't
need to use an external tcpd at all.  Your inetd.conf line should be:

nntp stream tcp nowait news /usr/local/sbin/leafnode leafnode

and double check that the -w option is included in inetd_flags in
rc.conf --- it's there by default.
