[bug-gettext] Uses of obsolete $(mkdir_p) in gettext codebase.

I see that gettext still uses the obsolete $(mkdir_p) variable, instead
of the modern equivalent $(MKDIR_P).  Future Automake versions will only
define the $(mkdir_p) variable when they see that the obsolete macro
AM_PROG_MKDIR_P is in use as well.  Since Gettext has stopped using that
macro since version 0.18.2, the $(mkdir_p) variable (as well as the
@mkdir_p@ substitution) will no longer be available in the makefiles
and makefile recipes generated by Gettext.  So it would be safer, in
view of forward-comaptibility, if Gettext would start using $(MKDIR_P)
exclusively, dropping any use of $(mkdir_p) that is still present.
