As far as I can tell, this was never used.
In commit 9b56647abc8dc33bf138d4b260b103c8d9265b7d the parsepkgbuild script was switched from defining a PATH as a directory in /tmp, to actually passing in a PATH=/dummy to `env -i`... which makes sense as the defined PATH did not used to be used. However, even before that, it's not safe to use mkdir -p in order to define a restricted shell without access to the PATH, as it's not guaranteed to be owned by the creator.
In any event, the time for mkdir -p is long past.
