I have few freebsd and openbsd machines to test :)

I have related suggestion on this:
instead of using tempnam, use mkstemp. This recommends many manuals, but 
openbsd only warns about this :) So when hacking autoconf forxwpe 1.5.x, 
what about adding check for mkstemp, and try to use first mkstemp, then 
tempnam and if none is available, than xwpe internal function ?
