The "standard" way for an application to do this is to look for the TMPDIR
environment variable, and use that for the directory to create temporary
files.  This doesn't happen automatically, it's up to the application to
do this.

Still, if I:

$strings /local/gnu/bin/cvs | egrep TMP
E Value of %s for TMPDIR is not absolute

So it appears that cvs does honor TMPDIR.  Try setting that, a la

        export TMPDIR

        cvs whatever
