Not what you asked, but on NetBSD 5.1, libc fnmatch is used, and with
git that test passes.

This prompted me to look at the rest of the tests.  All tests pass
(except for expected failures) until:

  *** t0070-fundamental.sh ***
  ok 1 - character classes (isspace, isalpha etc.)
  not ok - 2 mktemp to nonexistent directory prints filename
  #               test_must_fail test-mktemp doesnotexist/testXXXXXX 2>err &&
  #               grep "doesnotexist/test" err
  ok 3 - mktemp to unwritable directory prints filename
  ok 4 - check for a bug in the regex routines
  # failed 1 among 4 test(s)

Running this by hand, I get:

gdt 51 /usr/pkgsrc/devel/scmgit-base/work/git- > ../test-mktemp 
foo/barXXXXXX > MKTEMP.stdout 2> MKTEMP.stderr; ls -l MKTEMP*
-rw-r--r--  1 gdt  wheel  121 Dec 18 15:14 MKTEMP.stderr
-rw-r--r--  1 gdt  wheel    0 Dec 18 15:14 MKTEMP.stdout
gdt 52 /usr/pkgsrc/devel/scmgit-base/work/git- > cat MKTEMP.stderr 
fatal: Unable to create temporary file 
'/usr/pkgsrc/devel/scmgit-base/work/git-': No such file or 

It seems ENOENT is correct for the directory not existing.  I think the
test is complaining that the failed call to mkstemp modified the

Looking at:

I can't see that it requires anything in particular for the in/out
paramater when there is an error.
