(cd /home/michael/Development/junk/lib/hipe/rtl && \
 erlc -W  +debug_info +warn_obsolete_guard +inline -o../ebin hipe_rtl_arch.erl)

That is, run the command manually and see if you get better
error printouts.

If that fails, add "strace -fo strace.log" before "erlc -W" and see
if that log says anything interesting about why the file write fails.
Is your /home/michael filesystem full?

It seems the erlc compiler cannot write a temp file,
and it is during compilation of the Hipe compiler.
