I don't remember: where is this temporary file read?

It's read by a different process (fork+exec), so it doesn't matter for 'make' now whether it uses "w+" or "w". It matters only for possible future changes to 'make' later, assuming we ever change other parts of 'make' to sometimes need read access via the same FILE *.
