This question was raised before several times. When I started working
on ports back some n years, I noticed that lots of MKDIR's were muted,
while INSTALL_FOO's were not. I thought that this is probably for the
same reason why we do not generate a commit message for directory
creating in CVS, just for the files. In other words, creating a
directory normally followed by some file(s) being put in it, thus MKDIR
itself carries less information and probably just making things overly
noisy (yet verbose).
To tell you the truth, I'm all hands for a policy here. If we decide
(like we had decided with patch files naming) upon certain convention,
whatever it'll be, I will just follow that. I'd love to see more
consistency and order in our Ports Collection.
