I just noticed that in the absence of TMPDIR, TMP or TEMP in the
environment, new-toolchain's gcc uses /var/tmp for intermediate files.

Looking back at `old' toolchain, there's a NetBSD-specific kludge in
choose-temp.c which re-defines P_tmpdir to /tmp rather than the default
/var/tmp from stdio.h

It would be nice if the default was, once again, /tmp to regain the
advantages of using mfs.
