	Could we either change the message in configure
	or add the following to the FAQ:

	If you get <locking unavailable>, you are either
	running an ancient Unix (v7 or older) or configure
	has failed.  This message is the logically last
	test done by configure, and if configure had internal
	errors, it will complain about locking.
	It is known that gcc 2.7 compilers will trigger this:
	upgrade to 2.8 before attempting further dignosis.
