I double checked and the configure script should able to write to /tmp. The
/tmp directory's permissions are set to drwxrwsrwt. In fact configure does
create several files in the /tmp directory that all have names similar to
sh<number>. The strange thing is that all these files end up with a size of
0. I also double checked the amount of free space in /tmp and there are a
couple hundred MBs free, so space isn't a problem.

Any other ideas?
