 > What else of mkdtemp and mkstemp does Solaris not provide?
 I'm not really sure what you mean.
 mkstemp is available in Solaris, at least in version 10. Please note 
 this section in NetBSD's manpages for mkdtemp:
   The mkdtemp() function is nonstandard and should not be used
   if portability is required.
 So IMHO mkdtemp is a no-no for pkgsrc. See pkg/39717 for another case.
