Hmm.  OTOH with your patch AC_PROG_MKDIR_P requires an install-sh that
is new enough anyway, and `autoreconf -vif' will happily overwrite it
with an older copy from the installed Automake version..

Maybe we need a notion "this macro requires Automake >= 1.10, if you use
Automake", to be used inside AC_PROG_MKDIR_P.  Alternatively, we could
just document that usage of both Automake and AC_PROG_MKDIR_P requires

since after all, this macro is mostly designed for users not using
Automake (and maybe Automake just moving to use the Autoconf version
