Line 603 of ltmain.in in the current CVS looks like this:

      until $run ln "$0" "$lockfile" 2>/dev/null; do

The problem is that "$0" and "$lockfile" usually are paths to files in
different directories and you can't make hard links between
directories in AFS. This results in a that you get stuck in getting
lines like:

Waiting for arc.o.lock to be removed

A patch is attached to this mail.
