xen installation - /var/lock already exists

Hi all,

I am having issues installing xen from the AUR as it has /var/lock as a directory in it and /var/lock already exists (provided by filesystem).  I am building ArchLinux with a set of shell scripts.  The interesting thing is that I am able to install the built package in my running system which should have exactly the same setup as the one being built.

I only get this issue when building with packer.

I'm hesitant to do the --ignore-filesystem flag, any ideas what I can do to resolve this issue properly?
