[ greps... ]  Oh, that error is coming from src/test/thread/thread_test.c.

I wonder why we have that trying to write to /tmp at all, when all the
other transient junk generated by configure is in the current directory.
Bruce, do you have a good reason for doing it that way?

(The error message seems to be suffering from a bad case of copy-and-
paste-itis, too.)
