I've seen a couple of packages that did use @address@hidden Honestly for what
concerns Gentoo I think we're better off without either $(mkdir_p) and
@mkdir_p@ and get them updated (of course the same does not apply for
non-distribution contexts).

What is causing us headaches are the portability warnings and the
excessive use of -Werror in projects, but that's a different story (for
what it's worth, the latest gettext release relies on AM_PROG_MKDIR_P
still, which is causing warnings and thus failures with -Werror).
