If its safe not to use mktemp when its not there,
then its safe not to use mtemp when it is there.

Either that or its not safe and a safe replacement is neede.

Andrew, this is one of only two only mktemp related code points that I could
find in pacemaker. The other is in python and I assume it is fine.
