Ok, SGPath is a bad place to put it in.

I checked plib and found that it has no mkdir functionality at all.
In fact plib doesn't even have a file handling library.

However I don't like the idea of adding this to plib because I rely on SGPath 
for the path name abstraction and I don't want to have to add SGPath to plib 
How hard would it be to get something totally new added to plib which most 
other users will consider as unnecessary?

BTW : SimGear uses mkdir in SGBinObject::write_bin so it looks like whoever 
wrote that thought it would be much easier to just call mkdir right there and
