Internet Explorer on Linux
Branch: master
Clone or download
drafnel lib/ ensure target directories exist
Newer versions of wine do not create some directories that older versions
of wine apparently used to create.  When the ies4linux scripts try to copy
files into these missing directories, they fail.  So, pre-create the
directories using mkdir -p.
