-# AM_PROG_MKDIR_P
-# ---------------
-# Check whether `mkdir -p' is supported, fallback to mkinstalldirs otherwise.
-#
-# Automake 1.8 used `mkdir -m 0755 -p --' to ensure that directories
-# created by `make install' are always world readable, even if the
-# installer happens to have an overly restrictive umask (e.g. 077).
-# This was a mistake. There are at least two reasons why we must not
-# use `-m 0755':
-# - it causes special bits like SGID to be ignored,
-# - it may be too restrictive (some setups expect 775 directories).
-#
-# Do not use -m 0755 and let people choose whatever they expect by
-# setting umask.
-#
-# We cannot accept any implementation of `mkdir' that recognizes `-p'.
-# Some implementations (such as Solaris 8's) are not thread-safe: if a
-# parallel make tries to run `mkdir -p a/b' and `mkdir -p a/c'
-# concurrently, both version can detect that a/ is missing, but only
-# one can create it and the other will error out. Consequently we
-# restrict ourselves to GNU make (using the --version option ensures
-# this.)

- # $(mkdir_p) $(somedir)
- # where $(somedir) is conditionally defined. However this is wrong
- # for two reasons:
- # 1. if the package is installed by a user who cannot write `.'
- # make install will fail,
- # 2. the above comment should most certainly read
- # $(mkdir_p) $(DESTDIR)$(somedir)
- # so it does not work when $(somedir) is undefined and
