Audit our Automake files to ensure that:

1. We're prefixing $(MKDIR_P) with $(GROFF_V), $(AM_GEN_V), or $(AM_V_at), as appropriate.
2. Further target rule actions depend on the success of $(MKDIR_P).

While we're at it we might:

3. Verify that we use $(GROFF_V) where we should.  (This communicates, in non-verbose builds, that groff itself is being used to create a target, as with ms.ps from ms.ms, for instance.)
