This includes code that really should have been part of ANSI/ISO C, but was
left out for historical reasons (despite requests to define ftty), plus
the get_lock() and log_message() functions.

cron job and improve the diagnostics; it can be replaced by a 'return'
statement if it causes implementation difficulties.  Note that there is little
point in clearing the lock under Unix, but do so anyway. */
