Right but is it sooo easy, just add a little "s" inbetween for all those
ocurrences? I am no programer and therefore stay away from such if I see
those surroundings.

static void
m4_maketemp (struct obstack *obs, int argc, token_data **argv)
  if (bad_argc (argv[0], argc, 2, 2))
  mktemp (ARG (1)); /* <--------- mkstemp (ARG (1)); ---? */
  obstack_grow (obs, ARG (1), strlen (ARG (1)));

static char const *
make_temp (int letter)
  char *r;
#if HAVE_MKTEMP /* <--- what about this? config.hin has only this */
  char const *tmpdir = getenv ("TMPDIR");
  if (!tmpdir) tmpdir = getenv ("TMP");
  if (!tmpdir) tmpdir = getenv ("TEMP");
  if (!tmpdir) tmpdir = TMPDIR;
  r = xmalloc (strlen (tmpdir) + 10);
  sprintf (r, "%s/p%cXXXXXX", tmpdir, letter);
  mktemp (r); /* <------------- mkstemp (r); ---? */
  if (!*r)
    pfatal ("mktemp"); /* <---- pfatal ("mkstemp"); ---? */
  r = xmalloc (L_tmpnam);
  if (! (tmpnam (r) == r && *r))
    pfatal ("tmpnam");
  return r;

I go without ed (another one I remember) but the rest of basic lfs
is clean here due to default logs (no extra warn flags added), and
a full console system has only mutt-1.4 and lynx-2.8.4 with those.
