Subversion uses an APR function (which we donated to that project) for
finding a temporary directory. It does so by trying to find a writable
directory using the following search path:

          $TMP
          $TEMP
          $TMPDIR
          "C:\TEMP" (windows only)
          "SYS:\TMP" (netware only)
          "/tmp"
          "/var/tmp"
          "/usr/tmp"
          P_tmpdir (POSIX define)
          `pwd`

Do you have one of those first three environment variables set to a
non-writable location?
