Cygwin /tmp\foo behaviour

When building Xfree I get the following error using cygwin1.1.2

rm -f libX11.a
rm -f libX11.dll
if [ -f /tmp/DLL_BASE_COUNTER ]; then true; \
else echo 0x67000000 > /tmp/DLL_BASE_COUNTER; fi
dllwrap -s --def X11.def --output-lib libX11.a -o libX11.dll Context.o
Depths.o  ParseCmd.o  Quarks.o
parts removes
.omTextPer.o  omXChar.o  junk.o  -image-base `cat /tmp/DLL_BASE_COUNTER`
Can't open base file /tmp\cc017659.base
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
dllwrap: gcc exited with status 1
make[4]: *** [libX11.dll] Error 1
make[4]: Target `all' not remade because of errors.
make[4]: Leaving directory `/e/build2/cygwin-xfree/lib/X11'

I assumed that "Can't open base file /tmp\cc017659.base" is the problem?

If I do a test
$ ld /tmp\foo.exe
ld: cannot open /tmpfoo.exe: No such file or directory
Is this the expected behaviour with the latest Cygwin?

Does any one else see the same problem or have I done something wrong?
