[PATCH] configure: pre-create build directories for VPATH builds

From: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder_at_gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 4 Nov 2011 17:41:06 -0500

With r1197804, I tried:

        svn export ~/src/subversion svn-test
        cd svn-test
        mkdir BUILD
        cd BUILD
        ../configure --prefix=$HOME/opt/subversion
        make extraclean-swig

The result:

        for d in /tmp/svn-test/BUILD/subversion/bindings/swig/python /tmp/svn-test/BUILD/subversion/bindings/swig/python/libsvn_swig_py; \
        do \
          cd $d && rm -rf *.lo *.la *.o *.pyc .libs; \
        /bin/sh: 3: cd: can't cd to /tmp/svn-test/BUILD/subversion/bindings/swig/python
        /bin/sh: 3: cd: can't cd to /tmp/svn-test/BUILD/subversion/bindings/swig/python/libsvn_swig_py
        make: *** [clean-swig-py] Error 2

The following patch fixes it for me. What do you think?

* configure.ac: In VPATH builds, create directories imitating the source
    hierarchy under the build directory, so other parts of the build system
    (like "make extraclean-swig") don't have to worry about directories not

Patch by: peters
(Tweaked by me to avoid creating unnecessary .svn directories when building
from an svn checkout.)
