Prefer /var/tmp over /tmp for large temporary files
Submitted by Richard

On many newer systems /tmp is a tmpfs not real storage and has limited space (Fedora defaults to 4GB).
There's probably several options to work around this but a couple are:
- Test if /var/tmp exists and use it if it does.
- Test if /tmp is tmpfs and use somewhere else if it is.
