There seems to have been a regression in /usr/sbin/makewhatis between
man-1.5h1-20 (which
works fine for me) and man-1.5i-2.  With man-1.5i-2 installed in my Rawhide
20010503 system,
the command "makewhatis -u -w" produces:

/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: makewhatis7xGQza/w: No such file or directory

Looking at the /usr/sbin/makewhatis scripts in man-1.5h1-20 and man-1.5i-2,
there seems to have
been a change in the handling of temp files via mktemp.
