Update of sr #110740 (project autoconf):

                Severity:              3 - Normal => 2 - Minor              


Follow-up Comment #3:

This is not a serious bug, as "make install" is supposed to fall back on
install-sh in this case, and install-sh should do the right thing on platforms
like NetBSD where mkdir works correctly. So the bug is merely that
installations are a bit slower on NetBSD.

If someone could verify that the relevant OSes have been fixed, and that the
older race-buggy versions of mkdir have been end-of-lifed by NetBSD, etc., and
could write the Autoconf patches accordingly, that would be nice. It would
likely require pawing through decades-old Git logs or whatever.

Marking the bug as minor.
