the error is telling you that the file
is present in your DESTDIR but not listed in the file list (`flist').

this condition usually occurs because the listed file is now obsolete (*).
to solve the problem, you could either:
	a) rm /disk/0/build/i386/usr/share/man/man9/simple_lock_unlock.9
	b) remove your entire DESTDIR directory and start from scratch.

i recommend trying `a)' first :)

(*) we need to examine the "make obsolete" flist stuff, but only after
the "a.out->ELF" `obsolete' stuff is yanked from the obsolete.* files.

i hope that helps,
