Configure for samba-2.2.2 on hpux-10.20 stops with ..

checking configure summary
ERROR: No locking available. Running Samba would be unsafe
configure: error: summary failure. Aborting config

This seems to be an old problem.

I downloaded the whole samba-technical-archive and found
several complains about but no hint what to do. 

For example, in a posting from Fri, 12 Feb 1999 Alexandre Oliva wrote
"AFAIK, this problem is supposed to be fixed in Samba 2.0.2."

At least for me, it seems it is now back again.

So please, can one of the gurus explain where that problem 
comes from and how it can be fixed?

(I know hpux-10.20 is an ancient system. But some nostalgic 
thinking people like me continue to use it up to the day the
hardware crashes.)
