 Log Message:
 PR/29722: Andreas Kling: chpass temporary files in /etc not always unlinked
 We had a (long) discussion about this in #NetBSD-code and the consensus was
 that /tmp should always be sticky (+t), and as such it is safe to create
 the temporary files for chpass(1) in there. We added a check to guarantee
 this (and bail out otherwise) and now temporary files are created in /tmp,
 not filling up /etc.
 Thanks to rivo nurges et al.
