In retrospect, I don't see any point changing this. The issue isn't
just applicable to mkdir, but to all commands; the mkdir command which
is failing just happens to be the first command for the first target

Unless we quote every single pathname variable in every Makefile
(which I don't consider to be feasible), trying to build from a
directory whose pathname contains shell metacharacters simply won't
