proc directory in /var/named/run-root?

    I was trying to troubleshot an issue with a 7.5.4 upgrade where a named error forced an error and abort of the upgrade:

    ===> Installing and configuring Named Server

    Trying to untar named run-root directory structure... done
    Trying to set up default permissions... /var/named/run-root
    find: /var/named/run-root/proc/5647/fd/4: No such file or directory

    ERROR while trying to set up default permissions


    Now while looking in that directory I find the following:

    [root@ns4 run-root]# ll
    total 12
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 3 00:23 dev
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 3 01:59 etc
    dr-xr-xr-x 171 root root 0 Nov 22 04:27 proc
    drwxr-xr-x 3 named named 4096 Apr 3 01:59 var


    Why is the proc directory here?
    Listing this directory provides the same results as /proc.

    Also, how can I delete this without causing a problem on the server?
