Nope, no mkstemp() in MSVC's runtime. I pulled the one from GNU
libiberty. It's in src/replace and automatically built into libreplace
if configure can't find a native mkstemp call. (And it's hard-wired
into the MSVC projects.)

Yes, they call that a feature rather than a bug. I suspect it's a
side-effect of their way of looking at files in a filesystem. They have
this notion that a filename _is_ the file rather than just a
human-readable representation of the file.
