No, fcntl is not the default. I'll have to look at the documentation.
--with-lock=flock should fix this for you though if it makes a difference.
Except that it has been since 2.1.7:
> Change default locking method to fcntl from flock
If I recall, it's due to the fact that Linux had a buggy flock but a
working fcntl and no one could come up with another reason. The
mailing list archives probably have more.
