It's already there!  You must have overlooked it in the configure --help
output under "Optional Packages:".  It says:

  --with-tmpdir           The temporary directory CVS should use as a default
                          (default autoselects)

And when you run configure, it tells you what it autoselected:

        checking for temporary directory... /tmp

These findings suggest a logical course of action. -- Calvin
