For POSIX we want to check $TMPDIR and fallback to "/tmp" if unset.
Here it just starts with "/tmp", following current VLC use, with the
second patch implementing use of $TMPDIR.

I split it just so that it would be easier to drop the $TMPDIR aspect
if just a hard coded "/tmp" was wanted as before, or otherwise the two
commits could be merged in the final revision.

I've never played with UWP, but have some awareness that there are
supposedly certain restrictions that normal apps don't have. The
existing code in src/win32/dirs-uap.c does things very differently to
the alternative win32 code. Are you sure that will work?
