Yes, that's true, as the locking code will want to create a lockfile 
under ${WRKDIR} somewhere.  I guess we should have bootstrap-depends use 
slightly different locking code that uses somewhere under ${TMPDIR} 
rather than ${WRKDIR} for the location of the lockfile.  Does that sound 

In the meantime, I'll commit my current patch if you have no objections, 
and we'll fix the locking in a little while.
