Follow-up Comment #7:

I reopened this report in response to Rik's comments.

I also tried fixing the problems, but I just don't understand how the gnulib
mkdir-p thing is supposed to work, and I don't have time to work on this now.

I've attached my attempt below.  This seems to solve the umask problem in some
cases, but not all.  With my changes, it fails for things like

 mkdir ("/tmp/foo/bar")

if only /tmp exists.

I recommend looking at the coreutils mkdir program to see how this gnulib
module is supposed to be used.

Unfortunately, the gnulib code seems to be written with the idea that printing
error messages is ok.  Or maybe there is some way to disable that with the
gnulib error module that I don't know about.  We need to have Octave in
control of printing error messages, not gnulib.
