      Description

      Currently, tools like javac, javadoc, javah provide options to allow an output directory to be specified, and currently, an error is generated if the directory does not already exist.

      It would be better to simply create the directory (and any necessary parent directories) instead,

      This applies to the following tools and options:

      javac: -d -s -h
      javadoc: -d
      javah: -h
