Not after R has started, but if you set the TMP or TEMP environment
variable to the name of an existing directory, that will be used as
the base of temp directories.  You can do this on the R command line,
e.g. set the Target field in the R shortcut to 

C:\R\rw1081\bin\Rgui.exe TMP=c:/junk

More on this is in ?tempdir and ?Startup.
