Blech.  I hate autotools.  To work around this, you should find
a mkinstalldirs (its just a script) somewhere else (probably in
the toplevel) and copy it into the libs/ directory.  Then try
the make install again.

This is why relying upon random peope's versions of the autotools
is bad (when building CVS snaphots), and instead using real dist
tarballs (made by the developers) is easier for end-users.
