I can remember that on Win32 an environment variable can be unset via
putenv somehow... I'll investigate that.

In fact there is no mkstemp() on Win32.  Basically the mkstemp.o gets
added to the list of objects when there is no in the libc.  That is why I
think the prototype can be written there (same as with inet_aton).

The -lm is found but not used for anything.  When -lm is on the linker
line libtool would fail to create a dll, that is why I removed it for
