Recently bumped once again into "misc/58117: installworld /tmp/ 
problem". Would it be better to solve it at "once and for all" basis?

This is a good choice for securing servers to make /tmp noexec. But when 
you did that - you'll have to face this bug again. Yes, it can be solved 
  by specifying TMPDIR. But:
  - UPDATING says nothing about that;
  - nor documentation do;
  - the message is kindda cryptic and it takes time to understand whats 
going on.

Why not document the issue or prevent it by using custom catalog?

Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow!
