That depends on whether you assume the builder had a good reason for
setting the variable in the environment, but I can look at this your way
too since the CVS executable itself will look at $TMPDIR, $TMP, & then
$TEMP itself at runtime before it defaults to the value selected by
configure.  Anyone else care enough about this to register an opinion?

Once Law was sitting on the bench
    And Mercy knelt a-weeping.
"Clear out!" he cried, "disordered wench!
    Nor come before me creeping.
Upon you knees if you appear,
'Tis plain you have no standing here."

Then Justice came.  His Honor cried:
    "YOUR states? -- Devil seize you!"
"Amica curiae," she replied --
    "Friend of the court, so please you."
"Begone!" he shouted -- "There's the door --
I never saw your face before!"
