Hi all,

I've made a patch for sysutils/mcron to fix a fetching problem
and to update. In the new distfile the file mkinstalldirs is
missing. I can see several ways to solve this:

Deliver it with the port (some extra byte) and copy it:
	@${CP} ${FILESDIR}/mkinstalldirs ${WRKSRC}

Create a new dependency on automake and link it:
	@${LN} -sf ${AUTOMAKE_DIR}/mkinstalldirs  ${WRKSRC}

Or replace it in
	@${REINPLACE_CMD} -e 's|./mkinstalldirs|mkdir -p|g' ${WRKSRC}/

What would you suggest/prefer?

Best Regards
