Strange file type - Unable to delete the file
Hi all,

My make fails with an error menitoned below:
rm: cannot remove directory `/xxx/yyy/zzz/bin': Directory not empty
make[3]: *** [dist] Error 1

when I do a ls -ltr at /xxx/yyy/zzz/bin,I see the following
$ ls -ltr
total 0
?---------+ ? ? ? ? ? test

I am not clear how this got created. And I am unable to remove this file from the directory. Due to which my make is failing.

$ rm test
rm: cannot remove `test': No such file or directory

Kindly let me know how to solve this issue. How can I remove this file rm -rf and the other options did not work.
