OWN_DIRS can cause empty directories to be removed when they shouldn't
be. This was found while installing security/openssh on a Solaris system
which already had an empty /var/chroot/sshd.
Upon package de-installation the directory was removed, causing the
running sshd to fail because the directory did not exist.
Install and then deinstall a package which uses OWN_DIRS set to a
directory which already exists and is empty.
Only register creation of directories if they do not already exist
and on package deinstall, do not attempt to remove a directory which
already existed when the package was installed.
