glibc 2.28 removed _IO_ftrylockfile and every use of it can be replaced by _IO_EOF_SEEN.

See e.g. https://lists.gnu.org/r/bug-gnulib/2018-03/msg00002.html or https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=915151

licenseutils also embeds some of those files from gnulib, so it also fails.

The attached patch fixes such build failure.
