So mkdir() is not available in Windows?

Could you then please rewrite your patch to instead make a function that
looks and works like the unix version? Like this:

(and add #define HAVE_MKDIR in the src/config-win32.h first)

#ifndef HAVE_MKDIR
#ifdef WIN32

int mkdir(const char *pathname, mode_t mode)
  int result;
  (void)mode; /* unused */

  result = CreateDirectory(pathname, NULL);

  /* mkdir returns 0 for success, opposite of CreateDirectory() */
  return result?0:-1;

/* system without mkdir and we have no implementation */
int mkdir(const char *pathname, mode_t mode)
  (void)mode; /* unused */
  (void)pathname; /* unused */
  return -1;

It'll make the code in the function create_dir_hierarchy() look a lot nicer!
