Do you have enough inodes?
Do you have xz installed? Or gzip, depends on your settings in makepkg.conf.
Gonna bump and borrow this thread for a similar problem:
I'm trying to install selinux kernel via yaourt after I've downloaded the linux-3.3.tar.xz
It gives me this message:
And I've checked my my size/inodes, if I got xz & gzip and all seems to be enough to be able to extract linux-3.3.tar.xz

The problem was that I had too small for yaourt to temporary allocate the files, so a quick:
mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmp -o size=2000M,mode=1777,remount
