libtool not parallizable

I've had a number of troubles recently with libtool producing spurious
error messages during parallel builds because it uses "mkdir" to try to
create .libs and other directories.  If two sub-makes tries this
simulataneously from different CPUs (gmake defaults to 4-way builds)
mkdir will fail with a message like

        UX:mkdir: ERROR: Cannot create directory

Not pretty.  If ltmain.sh just used "mkdir -p" instead of "mkdir"
everything would work.  (At least on IRIX :-)
