What is your umask? What version of Boost are you using? The
following code works properly here as a naive implementation of the
"mkdir" command with the latest version of CVS version of Boost:

#include <boost/filesystem/operations.hpp>
using namespace boost::filesystem;
int main (int argc, char** argv)
    for (int i = 1; i < argc; ++i)
        create_directory (argv[i]);
% ./mkdir aaa
% ls -FldG aaa
drwxrwxr-x 2 cepstein 4.0K Aug  3 11:10 aaa/
% umask
