I don't think the error is happening on my last partition.  To verify that,
I tried compiling a c program and I got an error (after a few tries) saying
that ld failed writing to /tmp
The last few partitions of my hard drive are listed below:

 7:       Apple_UNIX_SVR2 opt                     614400 @ 1823921  (300.0M)

 8:       Apple_UNIX_SVR2 home                    102400 @ 2438321  ( 50.0M)

 9:             Apple_HFS MacOS                 11527935 @ 2540721  (  5.5G)

and the dirctory /tmp is on another partition on the same drive.
