Log Message:
When creating the binary package, first create a temporary file, and if
everything went well, rename it to the real name. That way, it is less
likely that broken binary packages are created. It is a common
assumption that binary package files, if they exist, are usable.

An example for a broken binary package is security/sudo-1.6.9p10, in
which sbin/visudo wasn't readable when creating the package as an
unprivileged user.
