mktemp + tempfile wrapper instead of lfs-utils

I had proposed using the official mktemp package and
1. either patch scripts that use tempfile (/usr/bin/updatedb,
/usr/bin/bzdiff, /usr/bin/bzcmp) to use mktemp, OR
2. create a wrapper tempfile script that will invoke mktemp with the
Attaching a script for Option 2 above. Please note that the script is
not heavily tested and may not be the most optimal. So would appreciate
feedback. Probably will submit the script to mktemp maintainer if he
would like to include it in the mktemp tarball.
The advantage of using mktemp from mktemp.org is that it is a maintained
version (the last update was April 2003); the version is lfs-utils is
just a copy of debianutils, so will need to be synced manually each time
debianutils is updated.
mktemp should be installed with (some scripts check for /bin/mktemp):
./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/bin --with-libc &&
The tempfile script should be copied to /usr/bin.
This was on my 2Do list for a long time, since I didn't want to use
something created by and for another distro ;-)
