        .              : ChangeLog 

Log message:
        * doc/autoconf.texi (Programming in M4sh): Add AS_MKDIR_P.
        (Limitations of Usual Tools): Add mkdir section.
        * lib/m4sugar/m4sh.m4 (_AS_MKDIR_P_PREPARE): New macro.
        (AS_MKDIR_P): Require it.  Use mkdir -p if available, falling
        back on AS_DIRNAME to compute prefixes otherwise; this is
        roughly what mkinstalldirs does.  That way, we need not have
        our own filename disassembler.  The old disassembler did not
        work with Solaris 8 dtksh, which is ksh Version M-12/28/93d.
        * lib/autotest/general.m4 (AT_INIT, AT_CLEANUP):
        Create at_test_all by a series of assignments,
        not by a single assignment of a long string.  The latter causes ksh
        version 11/16/88g to silently misbehave on OpenServer 5.0.6a,
        presumably because of a buffer overrun.
