Right now the functionality that creates the config directory lives in install_settings_form_submit() in install.core.inc. I put it here because it made sense to have everything that writes data to settings.php in the same place, however there are situations where this does not get called, for instance when you already have a settings.php with the database settings in it. In this case the config directory never gets created. So we need a new place for this to live.
