On Mageia build server (using -j24) the build fails sometimes:

help2man: can't get `--help' info from grub-kbdcomp
Try `--no-discard-stderr' if option outputs to stderr
help2man: can't get `--help' info from grub-mkstandalone
Try `--no-discard-stderr' if option outputs to stderr
help2man: can't get `--help' info from grub-mkrescue
Try `--no-discard-stderr' if option outputs to stderr
make[2]: *** [grub-kbdcomp.1] Error 1
make[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[2]: *** [grub-mkrescue.1] Error 1
make[2]: *** [grub-mkstandalone.1] Error 1

I reproduced the problem on my machine with:

make clean
make grub-kbdcomp.1

It seems a dependency on grub-mkconfig_lib is missing, as it is needed to run the commands.

This patch seems to fix it
