Bug#289395: how to control /tmp directory?

Package: rdiff-backup
Version: 0.13.4-3
Severity: normal

rdiff-backup writes hundreds of megabytes to /tmp, possibly
overflowing it. If the program has the possibility to control the
target directory for the temporary files, the manpage should mention

If the program always writes to /tmp, the temporary directory should
be configurable either by command line option, or per environment
