[PATCH] Option to choose another root tmp-directory in varnishtest & make check

Hello all,

The attached patch adds an option '-m tmpdir' to varnishtest, which sets
the directory within which the vtc.* temp directories are created for
each test, previously hard-wired to /tmp (-t was already taken).

This became necessary for me because Varnish was being built on a build
server for which /tmp was mounted with the noexec option. That caused
'make check' to fail, because some of the tests save shared objects into
a temp directory and then attempt to load them.

The Makefile for varnishtest is patched so that if you have TMPDIR
defined in the environment before 'make check' is called, then
varnishtest uses that, otherwise it uses /tmp.
