Several programs in the KDE distribution (kmail and kab are ones I've found so
far) have problems on NetBSD as they try to do calls of the form:

	mkdir ("...somedirectory/", 0755)

rather than

	mkdir ("...somedirectory", 0755)

and this fails on NetBSD.  A quick test has confirmed that the mkdir() with
trailing slash works on Solaris and Digital UNIX and I presume it works on 
Linux (or some KDE user would have noticed by now) so should it be made to 
work for *BSD  (following the be liberal in what you accept principle)?
