I cannot find any recent issue reports with locking on NFS. Anyone have 
recent links?

Anyways, we should be able to have the same functionality for this 
without using the locking. In addition, maybe the routine is not needed 
with newer log4cplus.

That should only be for testing purposes.  How did you run kea? (which 
should identify why it use the source directory)
