Why not *what*?  Why not fork the file?  Why not apply this patch as-is?
Why not integrate this change in Automake?  A wee bit of redundancy can
sometimes help get over the noisy channel that is non-native language.

Anyway, to integrate this in Automake would need a configure test in its (or a new m4 macro file) that isn't really needed there
currently (as Automake does not use XFile::lock at all).  If you insist,
I'll look into it.  However, my only real motivation to get Autoconf
running under DJGPP is so that I have an easy way to test configure
scripts under DJGPP by running the Autoconf test suite.
