Package: busybox-static
Version: 1:0.60.5-2.2
Severity: normal

If "dir" doesn't exist yet:

ay:~> busybox mkdir -p dir/.
mkdir: Cannot create directory `dir/.': File exists

"dir" is created as expected, but busybox returns with a non-zero
error code, and this makes some tools like "make" fail when having
a command like

  mkdir -p dir/$(*D)

in a rule.

I do not see the behaviour you experienced with recent busybox versions like 
the one currently in sid, so I think it's safe to assume the issue has been 
resolved. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
