Presumably because that is where the build is taking place; OP's home dir
must be under the Docs'n'Settings user dir. Trying the build in a subdir off
/tmp might be an instant and easy workaround. Otherwise check the FAQ on the
location of the home dir is decided; specifying a new home dir path (under
/home, for example) without spaces in the /etc/passwd entry might be best, as
this kind of problem could happen again with other software.
