I do believe mktemp to be portable (I don't think the original fix comes
from SUSE or Red Hat). All I was saying is that this particular solution
has been proposed and used before (and quite possible on other Unices as
well). Also I was drawing your attention to a set of patches by two
Linux vendors that have been used for a long time and which I believe
should be merged. Please have a look. Any incompatibilities that you
find I am happy to address.
