I think it is more practical to have $(mkdir_p) set to 'mkdir -p --'.

And you can often write
        $(mkdir_p) $(directory_list)
without knowing exactly the names of the directories.  It's natural to
forget that the directory name might start with a dash.

And $(mkdir_p) cannot be used with an option anyway.

So I propose the following variation of your patch.
(The install-sh part remains unchanged.)

Have a nice day,
