This is actually a supermin bug, fixed by the following commit (in
supermin.git):

commit ee7eec04fe5be5387168e43e546ec05f1c4372fe
Author: Richard W.M. Jones <rjones redhat com>
Date:   Wed Jun 26 21:40:26 2013 +0100

    Ignore ghost non-regular files.
    
    RPMs in Fedora 20 contain /var/run and /var/lock, as symlinks, marked
    %ghost.  The old code would create these as regular files which would
    then cause a failure if something was created inside them.
    
    You would see an error like this:
    
    Fatal error: exception Unix.Unix_error(8, "mkdir", "/tmp/supermineab65b098ad

It's fixed in Fedora >= 18 if you have the supermin >= 4.1.1-2.

Rich.
