That's the easy way when you install a new machine where the disks still have 
to be partitioned and all options are still open.. 

On an old and fully used machine like mine I'm afraid that Gilles's solution 
is the only solution. Create a tmp dir somewhere where there's space and 
softlink it to /tmp..  

I do hope one day for a setting for this, maybe I better check the bugtracker 
if there are points to give for such a feature..;-)
