It's easy to add .mh_profile check, but not all
commands read the profile (e.g. post).  Do
not know the reasons.

In these cases, any tmpdir setting in them will
not be used, making envvars the only reliable
method for specifying tmpdir location.

Therefore, I'm reluctant to add support for it since
it may cause confusion by a user when the setting
is not getting used.

Does anyone know if `post' is the only program
that does consult the .mh_profile?
