If you have to make such a change to lib/tempname.c, the chances are high
that gnulib users also will have to adapt their programs. Which would be
against the spirit of gnulib: Packages that use gnulib should use the
POSIX or glibc API.

What is the problem in the first place? Which warning or error did you
get? Please also show snippets from the .h files with relevant information.

I don't see such a #define in my copy of mingw64. Where do you see it?
