System: NetBSD thunk 1.4ZA NetBSD 1.4ZA (VAIO) #71: Tue Jun 6 12:09:02 EDT 2000 wes@thunk:/usr/wes/sys-current/arch/i386/compile/VAIO i386

	The fcntl(2) man page does not clearly document possible
	values for l_type; F_WRLCK, F_RDLCK, and F_UNLCK are mentioned
	in the F_SETLK section, but nowhere does it mention that they
	should be stuffed into the l_type field of struct flock.

	read man page
	should be trivial.
