A nice set of bugs you've found there.  Stepan's patch
is broken: autoconf has "special magic" to compute $(MKDIR_P) in each
directory -- it may contain a relative path to install-sh.

Then, our distdir change
isn't right either, because we use $(mkdir_p) from a changed directory.

And while testing I also found a bug in AC_PROG_MAKE_SET: the cache
variable isn't computed right if $MAKE contains a path name... needs
to be fixed in Autoconf.

Below is a patch for the first of the three issues.


        * m4/mkdirp.m4 (AM_PROG_MKDIR_P): Set `mkdir_p' to
        `'$(MKDIR_P)'', so that it retains the per-directory value
        computed by config.status.  Report by Ralf Menzel.
        * THANKS: Update.
