Comment:

 (In [9830]) mailpost:  change the default location of the database and the
 temporary files

 Add new -t flag to specify the default directory to use for temporary
 files.

 Also change the default location of the persistent database from pathtmp
 to patdb.  As a matter of fact, mailpost tries to store its Message-ID
 database in INN's pathtmp, but since it's usually running as the mail
 system (often daemon) rather than as news, this fails.

 Check that the directories are writable when mailpost is run, and
 otherwise die with an error.
