Builds (of graphviz, but presumably of other packages too) with "make

The warnings come from libtool generated "mkdir .libs" statements.
Thanks for the report. Unfortunately, mkdir -p is not portable, and
on those machines that have it (Solaris 8) are still not SMP safe.
I've just committed libtool--devo--1.0--patch-159 to HEAD as a
tentative fix, though I don't have a multi-processor machine to test it
on. If you have time to check that it works for you, then we should be
able to have it working in time for the 2.0 release.
