[Rd] Compiling R 2.12.0 from source: error (temp dir)

Dear list,  

I've just tried to compile R 2.12.0 from source as I think I found an error in a C function that I would like to fix and check before I go ahead with posting the presumed error.  

I've got the R Toolset 2.12 installed and configured correctly and followed the Admin manual closely (including the entire bitmap stuff; exact same versions as in the manual). Also, all anti virus software is turned off (as it complained on some .exe). I have Admin rights on my box.  

When I run 'make all recommended' I get the following error after a while:  

cannot create /tmp/R5436: directory nonexistent

mv: cannot stat `/tmp/R5436': No such file or directory

make[3]: *** [mkR] Error 1

make[2]: *** [all] Error 2

make[1]: *** [R] Error 1

make: *** [all] Error 2  

Any ideas what this is about? Seems that the compiler can't create a temp directory because of a missing directory.  

Thanks for any hints,
