Is this really necessary?
AUTO_MKDIRS creates problems for package maintainers, when the directory
layout changes it's painful to upgrade to a newer version.
No, it's not necessary. I just don't know _why_ it is painful. Could you
explain it? Then I'll remove the suggestion of using AUTO_MKDIRS from
pkglint and document its downsides in mk/install/install.mk.
My current impression is that updating a package is always painful when
the directory layout changes. Whether you have to edit the Makefile or
the PLIST or both. So how does a package upgrade look like if:
1. AUTO_MKDIRS is used
2. INSTALLATION_DIRS is set
3. Some other alternative I forgot?
