You don't mention the Autoconf version.  Was your "configure" generated
by Autoconf 2.54?  It has some fixes in that area.

Autoconf 2.54 doesn't do that.  Instead, it does something like this:

(umask 077 && mkdir $tmp) || exit
touch /tmp/foo
mv /tmp/foo .

Does this work around the problem for FreeBSD?  If not, is there
some command you can issue after the mkdir but before the touch,
which will fix the problem?

One possibility is to use GNU mv rather than BSD mv.
