Please check that you have a TMPDIR environment variable set outside
of your DJGPP.ENV, and that it points to a *local* disk.  The default
coded into DJGPP.ENV is that the temp. directory is %DJDIR%/tmp, which
you certainly don't want in a networked installation.

I.e.

	set | grep TMPDIR

should show you a directory outside that SMB share.

I shouldn't think so, but then, you never really know until you try it.
