Weirdly broken, this one. This seems to do the job:

function _makepath(p)
   if not path.isdir(p) then
    local subp = p:match(dirpat)
    if not _makepath(subp) then return false end
    return lfs.mkdir(p)
    return true

function makepath (p)
    return _makepath(path.normcase(path.abspath(p)))

That is, it's necesary to start with the full path, and work with
that. Tested on Windoze, should work on the other side!
