He was testing something by typing a command in bash. That is what I
meant. That is why I mentioned "bash" and then talked about "gcc". I
was trying to clarify the fact that Trevor's attempt to test the problem
by using a 'ld' command in bash was unrelated to the problem in gcc.

I would guess that your TMPDIR takes precedence, then. I'm not 100%
certain what causes the problem.
