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/removing that dir
would foil that. But if we could check for mkdir -p very early and simulate it
when it doesn't exist, it would sidestep that problem.
