'Almost certainly' was overstating it.  (Just got home after beers
with friends).  The other good way I know to get this one is
for that directory to already be there, or be a symlink to another
device.  The packager manager ought to be a lot smarter, but it
defaults to 'panic, panic, die' ... when it sees something it didn't
expect.
