Description
Javadoc currently throws an error if the destination directory does not exist:

javadoc: Destination directory not found docs

Why not instead just go ahead and create the directory?
Since a primary function of javadoc is to create files and directories,
it seems reasonable to create the destination directory as well.

We have implemented this in the MIF Doclet, and it works great
and saves having to run mkdir.
