Description for "lockscreen" command says: "Call a screenlock program
(/local/bin/lck or /usr/bin/lock or a builtin if no other  is  available)."

I can not find this in the code anywhere. It only reads the LOCKPRG environment variable.


Update the documentation to reflect actual behavior of the program.
