mkinstalldirs is obsolete and is not maintained any more, and new
distributions shouldn't distribute it.  install-sh now does the work
that mkinstalldirs used to do.

That makes more sense.  It'd take a lot of work to support arbitrary
combinations of Automake 1.X, Gettext 0.Y, Autoconf 2.Z, and current
Gnulib, and nobody really has time to do that.  It's usually better to
build with the latest tools.

Of course some exceptions might need to be made, but I don't know of
any reason for findutils to prefer gettext 0.14.6 over 0.16 nowadays.
