yes, I recall that.  Oddly, I was able to run the same executable on
Solaris 8 that failed on Solaris 2.5.1 (I compiled it on the latter).
My guess is that the mkstemp function was improved to always increment
its next-filename counter.  (And I'd taken it for granted that a tempnam
clone would not try to generate the same name over and over).  Given
that, I don't think I can write a usable configure test for mkstemp,
so I'll simply remove it.  (It's redundant given the temporary-directory
permissions, and I only turned it on to quiet those linker warnings ;-)
