Future version of gettext (starting from 1.18.2, which is to be
released soon) will use AC_PROG_MKDIR_P rather than AM_PROG_MKDIR_P,
and the problem you're seeing will disappear once you upgrade to
those versions.

Also, note that Automake 1.13 will *not* yet remove AM_PROG_MKDIR_P
(precisely for the sake of "older" gettext versions), so the warning
can be ignored for now.  The removal of AM_PROG_MKDIR_P will only
take place in Automake 1.14.

Actually, this code will still continue to work even after the
removal of AM_PROG_MKDIR_P.  You are still advised to use
$(MKDIR_P) rather than $(mkdir_p) in your code, but shouldn't
worry about third-party code as the above.

Ignore the warning for now (at least, until you upgrade to Automake
1.13), but upgrade to gettext 1.18.2 as soon as it become available.
