Actually ‘AM_PROG_MKDIR_P’ is used in macros that come from Gettext.
Maybe newer versions of Gettext (will) use the new macro.

That’s because ‘aclocal’ didn’t find pkg.m4–the set of Autoconf macros
that comes with pkg-config.

Perhaps you need to install another package to get pkg.m4, or perhaps
you need to run ./bootstrap like this:

  ACLOCAL="aclocal -I /path/to/pkg-config/macros" ./bootstrap
