Perhaps the `install' command from coreutils could replace mkinstalldirs.

I generally use `make install' with DESTDIR to create a local
Slackware package but I can change that script/habit without problems:

# from root
mkdir slack
make DESTDIR=$PWD/slack install
gzip -9 slack/usr/share/man/man1/snd.1
mkdir -p slack/usr/share/doc/snd
cp -r *.html pix slack/usr/share/doc/snd
cp -r HISTORY.Snd NEWS README.Snd sndins tools slack/usr/share/snd
cd slack
makepkg -l y -c n ../snd-17.8-x86_64-1.txz
upgradepkg ../snd-17.8-x86_64-1.txz
