That's why I suggested the wrapper function lookup TMPDIR_ENV on UNIX
and call the Windows gettemppath() function on Windows.


char *get_system_temp_dir (void)
    return xstrdup (getenv (TEMPDIR_ENV));


char *get_system_temp_dir (void)
    return xstrdup (gettemppath());

Then, replace the call to getenv in main.c with a call to

What about a rpl_mkdir wrapper in windows-NT/filesubr.c like:

#undef mkdir
extern int mkdir (const char *pathname); /* or include Windows header
with mkdir decl */
int rpl_mkdir (const char *pathname, mode_t mode)
    mkdir (pathname);
    /* chmod (pathname)? */

Not if you can use lib/mkstemp.c.  If you can, I think we should be able
to move cvs_temp_file into src/subr.c and share it.
