Well, of course. What I meant was that I wanted the code in the svn repository 
to be as "correct" as possible, so I used MKDIR_P.  My thought was whether 
there was some sort of autotools conditional that would allow this to work 
with automake 1.9 (i.e. if automake version < 1.10, define "MKDIR_P" to 
be "mkdir_p").

It seems like anyone working on my project just needs to use AM 1.10 or
