Seems BeOS has neither fcntl nor lockf

I have investigated further, and the Samba configure script for 2.0.6 is
having problems with fcntl under BeOS.  It seems to return -1 for everything.

It also seems that lockf is not implemented.

Is there any other way to work around this with Samba or am I SOL?
