Broken configure script

Thanks a million!  I'll probably just do a package for now until I can
get the lock daemon installed.

You had the right hunch, the fact that /usr/ports was mounted from
another machine does matter. Autoconf needs full filesystem locking
support, so you need to either enable the NFS file locking daemon
(rpc.lockd on freebsd) on
*both* the client and the server or use a local ports-tree.

Or, probably the easiest solution, install nrpe from a package.
