Problem with automake

I'm trying to compile some older linux program with automake under 
Cygwin. (My Cygwin installation is on the latest version.) I'm getting 
the following error message:
$ ./
calling autoconf and autoheader...
/usr/bin/ cannot create temporary file for 
diversion: Permission denied
/usr/bin/m4: cannot remove temporary directory /tmp/m4-KJkmd5: Directory 
not empty
autom4te-2.61: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1

Has anyone encountered this error message before? Is there something 
messed up with my file system permissions? How can I debug this?

Thanks for your help,
