In my system I have $TMP defined to tmpfs at /dev/shm. Generally, the Slackware way to build packages is to untar the sources to a temporary working location. Although your svn sources are not compressed, I continue to use the same practice by copying the source tree to a temporary location. tqtinterface and libcaldav compile fine. As do other packages from svn using this practice. Just libcarddav is resisting.
