Well, nVidia assumes that every distro in existence has two utilities available for use, which and mktemp. The first looks through your PATH for an executable (so, for example, which top would print /usr/bin/top), and mktemp creates a temporary file with a (hopefully...) unique name, then prints the name of the file.

Anyway, you're probably running LFS or something similar (I had this issue with LFS); you can just install the which and mktemp packages for whatever distro you are running. If you are using LFS, look on Freshmeat for them.
