DescriptionImplements fcntl(2) locking. no more perm_lock errors
 If you run a server, then you know of the somewhat annoying perm_lock errors that creep up, requiring your attention before anyone else can start a game.

This patch properly implements fcntl(2) locking on systems that can handle it (*nix systems), that results in the lock being automatically released on program termination, whether abnormal or not.

v1.0.1: fixed some warnings related to unused variables and some cosmetic things (reverted some indentations to make less changes in the source) - Edoardo Spadolini

Not to mention that the previous patch was for NetHack 3.4.2, and only applied with some fuzzying.[Quote]
