I'm trying to find a way to set an environmental variable so that the system will use /usr/tmp or something instead of /tmp as a temporary directory.

The story is that I was attempting to change the size of /usr remotely. I backed up all the data and then copied the bare necessities over to /tmp then changed fstab so the drive formerly known as /usr was never mounted and /tmp was mounted as /usr. Great! it worked... but now su isn't working... because now /tmp is 755.

Any insights are welcome.
