I just noticed that we don't need $am_aux_dir to be absoslute
here, so there is no point in using AM_AUX_DIR_EXPAND.  I'll fix

 Akim> how about moving this into Autoconf?

The problem is that $(mkinstalldirs) is only defined by Automake.

I think it would make sense to have the same macro without the
mkinstalldirs check in Autoconf.  Then we can switch to it in
the future.  (Using mkinstalldirs is not necessary, even if
mkinstalldirs is distributed.)
