           Summary: [Gtk] Deprecated Automake 'mkdir_p' causes build
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: decimalman at gmail.com

As reported at https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=420591.  The Gentoo ebuild runs eautoreconf (emulates autoreconf) on the sources before building.

With newer versions of automake run on the sources, 'mkdir_p' isn't set, but it's still used in the makefile.  The result is the following error:
make[2]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.8.1-r301/work/webkit-1.8.1'
touch stamp-po
make[1]: ./.deps/DerivedSources: Command not found
make[1]: *** [all-local] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.8.1-r301/work/webkit-1.8.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I submitted a patch to the Gentoo bug tracker changing all instances of 'mkdir_p' to 'MKDIR_P' in various GNUmakefile.am files, fixing the issue.
