You should not have to compile it yourself. Which distribution of Linux 
are you using? All Linux distributions that I'm aware of come with these 
standard utilities (or provide an easy way to get them). If you are 
using something esoteric for which this is not true then chances are 
that even if you could get mktemp installed you'll be missing lots of 
other stuff and FGS won't work for you.

Once again, which version/distro of Linux are you using?
