[p4] Strategy for porting empty directories in ClearCase to Perforce

The two choices are dummy files in the directories or change your build 
system to create the directories.

I prefer to have the build system create the directories.  My thinking is 
that if they don't exist for any configuration management purpose, that it 
is the build system's responsibility to make sure they are there anyway so 
they belong in the build scripts.
