ed: Use TMPDIR to locate the temporal file

The current behaviour of storing the scratch file in
the current directory is a bit painful, because it
generates files in all the directories where you
execute ed. BSD ed uses TMPDIR for this purpouse,
so if the user wants to put the scratch file in
other place different of /tmp it only has to set
this variable.
