Bleurgh! Why not just recursively try statvfs(2) ascending higher up
the directory tree until you find one that actually exists? No need to
create a temporary directory for that. But if you absolutely must create
a directory, can I introduce you to mkdir(2) and rmdir(2)?

Your use of system("/bin/mkdir ...") and system("/bin/rm ...") makes my
skin crawl :-)
