Building popt: 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated

Trying to run ./autogen.sh for the latest tagged release
(rpm-5.4.13-release) of popt from github and get the following:

configure.ac:22: warning: The 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated,
and its use is discouraged.
configure.ac:22: You should use the Autoconf-provided
'AC_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro instead,
configure.ac:22: and use '' instead of ''in your
Makefile.am files.

I believe this is related to the 'gettext' utility yet on my (Mint 17)
machine I'm running a version where AM_PROG_MKDIR_P should no longer
be used:

$ apt-get changelog gettext | grep -B9 AM_PROG_MKDIR_P
gettext ( unstable; urgency=low
  * Deprecated macro AM_PROG_MKDIR_P not used anymore. Closes: #709740.

Has anyone any thoughts as to whether the problem is due to the
setup/packages on my machine or this particular version of popt?

NB the following are installed: autoconf 2.69-6 and automake 1:1.14.1-2ubuntu1
