The GetLock bit is correct, but is unneeded, at least in CVS apt-pkg has
a default argument of 'true' to GetLock which is what the old non-flagged
version did. You should NOT need to explicitly add this, something is
seriously wrong if you did..

You must be kidding.. Bloody configure! That's really bad... No wonder
everyone thought things were messed up beyond belief

Otherwise, could someone involved with gnome-apt fix the autoconf
problems, patch and upload before the freeze? Otherwise it will be pulled.
