Sorry for the delay.  I looked into this if we should adapt it for the
install script, but I hesitate.  The current (coreutils-8.10-2.fc15.i686)
man page says:

	-p DIR use DIR as a prefix; implies -t [deprecated]

i. e. it explixitly lists the "-p" option as deprecated.

Can you please confirm that there is no newer version of mktemp (with
support for "--tmpdir") in CentOS ?

Yes, that's a major pain. But it's a nontrivial issue, and we have to
wait for either a fix from upstream or for a customer who pays for
the efforts needed to fix this.
