Ouch, I can reproduce this :-/  The issue is that the call to
AM_PROG_MKDIR_P in AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE has been substituted by a
call to AC_PROG_MKDIR_P, which doesn't define $(mkdir_p).  This
was an unintended regression.

I will soon push the attached patches to take care of the problem.
Note that they only re-introduce the $(mkdir_p) variable (because
is very easy to do so), but not the @mkdir_p@ substitution.  Anyone
knows if this can create problems in practice?

At this point, I plan to release Automake 1.12.2 in a week or so,
so that the packages affected the $(mkdir_p) regression should be
buildable again.
