RE: Bootstrap check

IIRC-I haven't looked at it since last November-this would break bootstrap on 
A/UX.  (Not that I've gotten it completely working yet anyway...)  Due to its 
lack of mkdir -p, it takes several attempts just to set up the initial 
directory structure before it really kicks off.  Checking for the dir would 
foil that.  But if we could check for mkdir -p earlier and simulate it when it 
doesn't exist, it would sidestep that problem.
