The line referred to makes a call to the tempfile command to define a valid temporary file to create the msgidx.

The bug refers to a 'make error' can you please indicate what error does this produce for you? (it works for me and for other users) Do you have a /bin/tempfile (or similar) program installed in you system?

Note: This binary is available in Debian.

I am assuming that you do not have any tempfile program and the genmsgidx breaks because of this. To prevent this I will add some code to the program to check if the tempfile binary exists before calling it.
