Subject: call tempfile from File::Temp as a regular function

We call File::Temp's "tempfile" function as a class method, but it was
never designed to be called this way. Older versions seemed to
tolerate it, but as of File::Temp 0.23, it blows up like this:

  $ git svn fetch
  'tempfile' can't be called as a method at .../ line 1117.

Fix it by calling it as a regular function, just inside the File::Temp
