Making install in po

To po/Makefile I added 
  MKDIR_P = /bin/mkdir -p
and it worked. Found the solution with 'make -n install' and saw the
folder was executed instead of being created.

It showed 
          dir=/usr/share/locale/$lang/LC_MESSAGES; \
           $dir; \
for po/Makefile:443 (install-data-yes: all)
          dir=$(localedir)/$$lang/LC_MESSAGES; \
          $(mkdir_p) $(DESTDIR)$$dir; \
