I really prefer for tmpwatch to use ctime instead of atime for files in
/tmp and /var/tmp. In fact, I think that should be the default, but that's
debatable. What's not debatable, in my opinion, is that tmpwatch should
support ctime for those of us who want to use it. A patch is attached.

patch to make tmpwatch support --ctime
ctime will be supported in 6.2.
This is not fixed in tmpwatch-2.2-1, which is what's currently in /pub/rawhide
on ftp.redhat.com. I'm going to attach a new patch against tmpwatch-2.2-1.

thanks for the patch. Will be included in tmpwatch 2.3.
