Is there space in your /tmp partition? What is the output of:
df

I did a little googling for your error, and found this. It's difficult to get much out of that link, there's not a whole lot of context to go on, but try typing

Code:
echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
at the command prompt, and paste the result back in to a reply. The link implies that /bin/mktemp (which is called by nroff), requires $LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be set. If it's not, that might cause the issue.

That's called shootin' from the hip, folks.

[mktemp] Can't create temp directory

ls -ld /tmp and ensure the perms are 777. Also check with "df /tmp" that /tmp is not 100% full.
