Yes, this hardcoded temp path is wrong.

It fixes the problem but it will create more and more temporary directories.
In PyPy, we have a "pypy.tool.udir.udir" which gets globally created for
every test run. Older test session directories will get removed so we
don't clutter temp-directories so much .... i just fixed it accordingly.

Ah, that sounds good! Yesterday i spent some time to get the tests
to fail more nicely if java/lisp/C cannot be found. So we have covered
both ends :-)
