* directory creation is usually done with install -d ; see numerous examples in the rest of the 

* What does this fix? AFAIK, DESTDIR is already made, as part of 
directories like

               if test ! -d $(DESTDIR)$$i; then \
                        echo "Creating directory $$i"; \
                        $(INSTALL) -d -m $(DIRMODE) $(DESTDIR)$$i; \
                else    true; \

Ok, I'll change the patch to use install as opposed to mkdir in a few days.

I was hitting a problem in installing python, which I have since solved by using this patch. So, I decided to submit it.

can you be more specific about the problem?

the install -d should come just before the 
command attempting to copy something into that dir.
