Actually, it deliberately *doesn't* auto-create the top level directories
for BSDOBJDIR and/or MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX. They should be created by hand.
(This is a sanity check to make sure directories outside the src tree
aren't created without permission of the builder.)
The comment about "mkdir -p" being used refers to the statements later,
where the specific objdir (not the top level objdir) is being created.
