New port: devel/liblockfile

This library implements a number of functions found in -lmail on SysV
systems. These functions are designed to lock the standard mailboxes in
/var/mail (or wherever the system puts them).

In additions, this library adds a number of functions to create,
manage and remove generic lockfiles.

The lockfiles are created by this library in an NFS-safe manner, that
is by using a tempfile and using link(2) to create the lockfile. It
works around several defects in NFS servers to make sure the lockfile
is created atomically.

The locking strategy is compatible with other well-written NFS-safe
