How do I force SVN to use /var/tmp NOT /tmp?

How can I tell SVN to use "/var/tmp" instead of "/tmp" for temporary files?

I'm trying to import a vendor-drop on a 1.5GB game engine SDK, using svn_load_dirs.pl. "/tmp" is a tmpfs and not big enough for what this project merge requires.



Athena: 663$ ./svn_load_dirs.pl -t tags/tgea-1.8.1 svn+ssh://userFoo@domain.us/home/userFoo/svn/tge14/gg/tgea-core-18/ trunk TGEA_1_8_1/

...............svn: Commit succeeded, but other errors follow:
svn: Error bumping revisions post-commit (details follow):
svn: Error writing to '/tmp/svn_load_dirs_dlyNRpJYkg/my_import_wc/documentation/content/documentation/Engine Reference'
svn: Can't write to file '/tmp/svn_load_dirs_dlyNRpJYkg/my_import_wc/documentation/content/documentation/Engine Reference/.svn/tmp/entries': No space left on device
Press return to quit and clean up svn working directory:
Cleaning up /tmp/svn_load_dirs_dlyNRpJYkg
Can't remove directory /tmp/svn_load_dirs_dlyNRpJYkg/my_import_wc: Invalid argument at ./svn_load_dirs.pl line 2042
Can't remove directory /tmp/svn_load_dirs_dlyNRpJYkg: File exists at ./svn_load_dirs.pl line 2042

Me: why does "/tmp" only have 2.4 GB free if "/" has 107GB free? and how do i fixed it.
Me: It just FUBAR a 1.5 GB SVN vendor-drop merge and import on the *last* line ...
#OPENSOLARIS: tmpfs is a memory based file system
#OPENSOLARIS: memory+swap. but you can make it not tmpfs if you want, just remove the mount in /etc/vfstab
#OPENSOLARIS: but... you really shouldn't need 2GB of /tmp space, it's meant for small, temporary files use /var/tmp if you need a lot of space
