The directory is created.  The question is *pre*create.  

In short it can't because it would be complicated in presence of
conditional headers, and impossible in presence of AC_SUBSTed
headers.  As for why $(includedir) is precreated, I don't know
whether that is a feature or not (it makes a difference when
nobase_include_HEADERS is empty).
