Description of problem:
inc: unable to lock and fopen /var/mail/vonbrand
Mailbox exists, and has mail. My self-build nmh-1.1 (no patches) works fine.
With this, nmh is completely useless to me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. inc
Actual results:
inc: unable to lock and fopen /var/mail/vonbrand

Expected results:
Get mail...

I've verified this.  The problem is that the build is defaulting to using
dotlocks to lock files rather than filesystem locking.

I'll add a fix into CVS tonight.

OK, I've fixed this in CVS.  Just waiting on the extras build process to kick
in.  In the event it takes too long, I've stuck the source rpms here:
