/tmp being too small for building packages after a "standard" Arch Linux installation, in combination with yaourt using /tmp by default is a problem. A simple workaround is to run yaourt with --tmp /somewhere/with/enough/space.
When this happens to me, I tend to do:
# yaourt -G <package> # cd <package> # makepkg
...in my home directory, which has plenty of storage.
