Shun fcntl, but when someone discards their /bin/mail that
uses it: "stupid".

And again, I'm not asking for nmh to be "stupid".  I am all
for sensible defaults.  If someone wants to choose a
different locking scheme for whatever reason, it doesn't
bother me.  If they can do it at runtime, even better.

Your order has no effect on my priorities.

As a matter of fact, I have fixed some things.  The build is
reasonably clean.  inc and folder operations seem to work.
whatnow doesn't, maybe because of (v)fork.  post doesn't,
but I haven't looked at it even to determine if it's a
nmh problem.
