That sets up the whole STDOUT-capture machinery and then stuffs
the (usually empty) output in a temporary scalar…

… just to throw it all away.

More direct:

    system qw( /bin/mkdir -p path/that/was/needed );

More importantly, `system LIST` has no issues with quoting, which
`qx` is susceptible to.
