I am trying to compile elm for NetBSD 1.0, but I'm having a problem with
file locking. When I start up elm, I get
Waiting to read mailbox while mail is being received: attempt #0
... then it says
Timed out - removing current lock file...
Couldn't remove the current lock file /var/mail/viento.lock
** No such file or directory **
Does this make sense? It thinks there is a lock, but as it says,
there is no such file. What's going on here? Does anyone else have a
config file I could steal? Thanks...
