could you please explain me the benefit of the error?
The change I did was to suppress the error only in the case that the existing
target already is a directory. If the target exists, but is not a directory,
an error will stil occure.
I suppose, that you do your own profile-writing.
Do you use the *parents* option for every mkdir occurrence?
I'm working to create profiles from the book and for so, I did not want to
change the content of the book (adding a *parents* option where it is not in
the book, is changing the book-content - IMHO).
What do you think about an entry in nALFSrc, whether the profile-handling
should be "strict" or "relaxed" - in the sense, that an "relaxed" operation
is like the behaviour of a well-formed Makefile :)
Don't know, whether I'm allowed to vote.
If so, I vote for relaxed handling (the patch and if liked the nALFSrc
The fix I did was a first step toward this, the entry in nALFSrc could be a
final solution for relaxed handling.
