The Mktemp package contains programs used to create secure temporary files in shell scripts.
Many scripts still use the deprecated tempfile program, which has functionality similar to mktemp. Patch Mktemp to include a tempfile wrapper:
patch -Np1 -i ../mktemp-1.5-add_tempfile-3.patch
Prepare Mktemp for compilation:
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-libc
The meaning of the configure options:
This causes the mktemp program to use the mkstemp and mkdtemp functions from the system C library instead of its own implementation of them.
Compile the package:
This package does not come with a test suite.
Install the package:
make install make install-tempfile
