For anyone wondering why this change is needed, if you try to use on a Solaris box (i.e. to control a number of your own,
custom tinderbox runs[1]), the flock() call on a file descriptor that is
not opened write-only fails with EBADF.

[1] Thank you Dag-Erling for making tbmaster and the tinderbox scripts
available.  My builds for some Solaris-based stuff are so much easier
using these scripts that I owe you a lot of beer :)
