I use something (slightly buggy at times) called NLtools to
generate stubs, it's supposed to be a Linux replacement for
MAKENL. It's from David Nugent ( but
I hear rumors that he dropped out of Fido development and
there are no upgrades for this program.

This is source code, makefiles for DOS/Win/OS2 included. For
my purposes (stubs) it works fine. You can try to fetch it
from here by email, the file will be returned, attached by
MIME encoding.

I don't know of any ftp location but most certainly it is
available elsewhere.
