[tex-live] mktexlsr and ignoring lsR*.tmp

I checked in the appended change (#4677) to bin/i386-linux/mktexlsr.  I
know that's not the correct source location, but I don't know where that
is.  source.development/TeX/texk/kpathsea/mktexlsr has other changes not
in the bin/*/mktexlsr version yet.  Sigh.

Sebastian, should we try to do a nightly or at least weekly build to
avoid being so out of sync all the time?

Anyway, the change just omits directory lines like this:

as well as the file lines
which were already omitted.

This makes it so my update-auto cron job does not check in a new version
every day.
