pre-2.0.4 bad flock() emulation w/lpd, nfsd

I am running slack 3.0, and pre-2.0.4 on a P90 w/ 16 MB RAM, 1.08 GB HH
(IDE). Towards the end of the boot, when slack's rc.inet2 (?) setup
starts lpd and nfsd, I get these errors:

mountdfcntl_setlk() called by process 58 (lpd) with broken flock() emulation
nfsdfcntl_setlk() called by process 60 (lpd) with broken flock() emulation.

(sendmail starts...)
(gpm starts....)

fcntl_setlk() called by process 74 (agetty) with broken flock() emulation

I get the last message two more times with two other invocations of agetty.

I haven't updated lpd or nfsd ( they are the versions that come with
slack 3.0).

It seems that process 60 is not lpd, but is nfsd, and terminates
after the error occurs.

I think I just need to update lpd, nfsd, and agetty. Am I correct?
