RFE: a tcl primitive to populate destdir

Component: base Version: 1.0

A fair number of ports don't populate desdir before trying to install, and fal over if you don't do it for them, as such many ports have a lot of install lines making the directories I propose a tcl primitive that takes a list and makes directories )named as specified in the list) in /destroot/prefix/

use something like

make-dir bin man lib

We now automatically populate the destroot with the following sequence: mtree -f macosx.mtree (which provides /Library, /Applications, etc.) mkdir -p ${prefix} cd ${prefix} && mtree -f prefix.mtree (which provides bin/, sbin/, man/, etc.)

After the port is done instaling, any empty directories in the destroot are pruned. The mtree files can be found in base/doc/.
