You could check its config, to see how it delivers mail (but it should be using
mail.local to do that, and invoking it without the -l flag unless your /var/mail
is accessed via NFS.

No config changes in the last few days, and this just starting happening a few days ago.

I _think_ there's something updated in pkgsrc which is doing this, but I have nearly 600 packages installed and no clue as to which ones were recently updated. (I rebuild and reinstall my entire package-set as a unit, not individually...)

But it is more likely that the .lock files are coming from some user agent -
something that is reading mail, and has been configured to use the wrong
kind of locking when fetching mail from /var/mail

Possible - see above.
