[developers] running LOGON from an NFS partition

I'm trying to run the LKB from a partition mounted over NFS. I see
nothing about this issue on the wiki, so I thought I'd see if anyone
on the list knows the solution. When I try to load the ERG, I get an
error complaining that flock() failed:
TSNLP(4): (lkb:read-script-file-aux "/home/sweaglesw/cdev/erg/lkb/
; Loading /home/sweaglesw/cdev/erg/lkb/script
set-coding-system(): activated UTF8.
Error: lockf failed: No locks available [errno=37].
[condition type: SYSCALL-ERROR]
A quick web search suggests that the flock() system call doesn't
support NFS volumes (although other file locking methods based on
fcntl() apparently do). Has anyone else experienced this, and is
there a known work-around? I could copy the LOGON tree to local
storage, but I'd rather not have to maintain multiple copies of it.
