autoconf 2.58 bug: AC_OUTPUT(symlink_to_dir/file)

The attached configure.in autoconf script demonstrates a problem
in autoconf 2.58, where AC_OUTPUT fails if some directory component
of the path name given is a symbolic link to a directory.

This worked correctly in autoconf 2.57, but fails in autoconf 2.58,
with the following error messages:

        mkdir: "bar": Exists but is not a directory
        config.status: error: cannot create directory "bar"                     
To reproduce, save the attached configure.in, and then just run
"autoconf" and "sh configure".
