Well, you could move /tmp to a bigger space.   
I think it is normally better to keep /tmp in its own partition.
But, if you are running out of space and it is not reasonable to
rebuild for now, then, if you have a large file system such as
a /home or /scratch or whatever, make a directory there and move
the /tmp stuff for now and make a symlink for it.   

Then, when you have the opportunity, rethink your partitioning
and redo it.    I tend to create my desktop with 512 MB /tmp and
serious working systems sometimes with a little more.
