I configured crontab as root as such:

0                             */6 *   *   *                          rancid

# Clean out config differ logs5

0                             23  *   *   *                           rancid
/usr/bin/find /var/rancid/logs -type f -mtime +2 -exec rm {} \


But an error is logged:
clogin error: Error: password file (//.cloginrc) does not exist

I do not understand what the path // is. The .cloginrc file is in

Or is it absolutely necessary to run cron as user rancid? 
p.s I'm using rancid 3.7
