I think you have the enclosing directory "zenspider" installed as a
package. Does `raco pkg remove zenspider` have any effect?

In v6.1.1.8, you'd get an error from `raco pkg install cover/`
complaining about the overlap f directories among packages. In v6.1.1,
that check wasn't yet in place, and the collision is detected later by
`raco setup` (as run by `raco pkg install`).
