Description
When the destination directory -d does not exist, javadoc 1.4.0 silently
creates one.  It should give a message, in case the user has made a
typo and is creating a new directory by mistake:

Creating destination directory: "./docs"

The message should go to standard out, not standard error.
If the directory already exists, don't display a message.
