I don't think so.

But the number of files created during an Emacs compilation is rather low
compared to the total time (remember my "benchmark" is to compile Emacs on a
Sun once on a tmpfs partition and the other time with a uifs partition but in
both cases the /tmp files used internally by gcc were on a tmpfs so are
irrelevant for this discussion).
