More details about cannot compile because of cpp.exe: /tmp/foo.i: Permission denied

Some more details about my inability to compile.

I determined that gcc and/or cpp honor the TMP environment variable.
But I still get permission denied

792/tmp> echo $TMP
793/tmp> cp /temp/rcs-5.7/src/a.c .
794/tmp> cpp a.c
# 1 "a.c"
main() { return 0; }
795/tmp> gcc a.c
cpp.exe: /tmp/ccQh4PLx.i: Permission denied

I can write files in this directory though 

796/tmp> cpp a.c >foo.i
797/tmp> cat foo.i
# 1 "a.c"
main() { return 0; }

800/tmp> type cpp.exe
cpp.exe is hashed (/usr/bin/cpp.exe)

Then I removed ntea from CYGWIN and started another bash session.

501~> echo $CYGWIN
ntsec tty notitle
502~> cd /tmp
503/tmp> gcc a.c
cpp.exe: C:\TEMP/ccQXlNyW.i: Permission denied
504/tmp> TMP=/tmp
505/tmp> gcc a.c
cpp.exe: /tmp/ccRxLxTH.i: Permission denied
506/tmp> ls -ld /tmp
drwxrwxrwt   2 administ Administ        0 Jun  6 19:05 /tmp/
507/tmp> id
uid=500(administrator) gid=544(Administrators) groups=544(Administrators)
508/tmp> ls -ldn /tmp
drwxrwxrwt   2 500      544             0 Jun  6 19:05 /tmp/

Here is the output of cygcheck -s
I did install into C:\ (which I later learned is not recommended.)  Is this
perhaps part of the problem?
