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.
