Aside from portability, patch-ae replace tmpnam with mkdtemp.
tmpnam() returns a pointer to the file name
mkdtemp() creates a mode 0700 directory and returns the path
Then, create temporary directory, and use it as regular file...
It is probably completely mistaken.
But I don't know what this patch try to fix, because it exists since initial
import with no reason.
