Let me expand on what Ken said:

On CentOS, as of nmh 1.6, the default is fcntl locking of the
spool file.  This can be overridden using --with-locking at
configure time or in mts.conf at run time, see mh-tailor(5)
or the documentation in mts.conf itself.

--enable-lockdir only applies with dot locking.  So as of 1.6,
it doesn't have any effect by itself in your configure command.

A Fedora nmh RPM might work on CentOS, though you'd need
permission to install it in the default location.  As of nmh
1.6, the RPM is configured with --with-cyrus-sasl --with-tls.

mhparam needs to be fixed so that "mhparam spoollocking" obeys
mts.conf.  "mhparam datalocking" does the right thing.
