Yes, this is certainly possible.  Just add:


to /etc/rc.conf, and then either reboot, or run:

   /etc/rc.d/tmp start

Note that this will mount a /tmp filesystem on top of anything that's
already there, thus making those files inaccessible until you unmount

(use whatever value of 32m you prefer, of course)
