On what operating system was that?  If this was on DOS or Windows 3.X,
then Makefile.tem2 and Makefile.tem are mapped to the same file name
after truncation to DOS 8+3 limits, so mv rightfully refuses to do
this.

If it was on Windows 9X, then you will have to post more information
about what's going on near the place in the script where this problem
happens.

EACCES means that the OS won't let you do the operation, like if you
are trying to delete a directory which isn't empty or rename a file
that is open.
