Indeed Lars, overwriting TMPDIR via TMPDIR = tmp 
caused a problem because the subdirectory tmp/ did *not*
exist for those rules of the Makefile doing latex+dvipdfmx

(it was not explicitly needed there: a subdirectory tmp/ was needed, 
created, used and then removed by some other rules from the Makefile)
thus the Makefile was running dvipdfmx with a TMPDIR variable set to
a non-existent directory

that this would trigger a warning isn't that surprising

it's all my fault,

Best regards
