Did a search on google and fixed the issue. /etc/fstab had noexec,nosuid
on the /tmp partition so all I had to do was umount /tmp

Subject: Permission denied error while doing a "make installworld"

Everything works well up until this point. I haven't changed any
permissions or anything so I baffled as to why the error below may be
happening. Please let me know what I'm doing wrong as this has worked
many times before on my other boxes without problems. 
cd /usr/src
santacruz# make installworld
mkdir -p /tmp/install.63146
for prog in [ awk cap_mkdb cat chflags chmod chown  date echo egrep find
grep  ln make makewhatis mkdir mtree mv perl pwd_mkdb rm sed sh sysctl
test true uname wc zic; do  cp `which $prog` /tmp/install.63146;  done
cd /usr/src; MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj  MACHINE_ARCH=i386  MACHINE=i386
bj/usr/src/i386/usr/games:/tmp/install.63146 make -f Makefile.inc1
make: permission denied
