Is the temporary directory writable by the user your mail delivery agent
runs as (or writable by everyone)? Is your mktemp installation actually
working? Have you tried configuring a different temporary directory?
From the README on setting the temporary directory:
> clamassassin uses a temporary directory to store some files during processing.
> Normally this is the /tmp directory, and in most cases this is the optimal
> choice. In some cases you may choose to change this for various reasons. To
> do so, set the TMP environment variable to the directory you wish to use.
> This directory will need to be writable by whichever user the script is run
This needs to be set before configure is run. If you are still having
problems, please post the output of ./configure and the permissions of
the temporary directory being used.
