[Buildroot] Error: cannot create directory $buildroot/ouput/var/cache

I am trying to use buildroot for the custom embedded project for which
I have cloned the 'beaglebone' configuration and customized for my
embedded platform (like a9 platform and codesourcey toolchain). After
doing a 'make', I see the following error:
mkdir -p /home/sriku/tmp/buildroot/output/target/etc
# Mandatory configuration file and auxilliary cache directory
# for recent versions of ldconfig
mkdir -p /home/sriku/tmp/buildroot/output/target/var/cache/ldconfig
mkdir: cannot create directory
‘/home/sriku/tmp/buildroot/output/target/var/cache’: Not a directory
Quickly walking through the above path, I see a file name 'cache'
already created under $buildroot/output/target/var/. So, I removed
this file and manually created var/cache/ldconfig directory and did a
'make'. The build is success after this. I feel, I am missing some
configuration in the buildroot.
Please provide me some inputs to debug this.
Thanks in advance,
