I think the default DJGPP installation creates this directory
because DJGPP's goal is to be as Unix compatible as possible, and
the typical Unix script may assume /tmp to exist.

But of course, it's safer to check $TMPDIR, and as I said, the GPC
scripts do so now (and the GPC function GetTempDirectory has always
done so as well).
