On a first install (or build in chroot), building of manpages fails due the reference to grub-mkconfig_lib introduced in r3826 in a couple of files (first one that the build comes across is grub-mkrescue). On a first install this file is obviously not available in ${datadir}.

PATH=.:$PATH /usr/bin/help2man --section=1 -i ./docs/man/grub-mkrescue.h2m -o grub-mkrescue.1 grub-mkrescue
help2man: can't get `--help' info from grub-mkrescue


./grub-mkrescue: line 49: /usr/share/grub/grub-mkconfig_lib: No such file or directory
