 Will this continue to work with older automake as well?


Quoting Keshav P R, who wrote the following on Wed, 28 Dec 2011:

   grub2-bzr r3732 fails to compile in Archlinux x86_64 with automake
1.11.2 due to upstream change

Due to this change pkglib_{DATA,SCRIPTS} is invalid. It needs to be
pkgdata_{DATA_SCRIPTS} due to which grub2 modules are not longer installed
at /usr/lib/grub but at /usr/share/grub. I added --datadir=/usr/lib and
--datarootdir=/usr/share to ./configure to workaround this problem, but
this is a dirty hack.

Since this seems to be a well discussed change among automake devs, I don't
think they might revert back. Therefore grub2 need to use a valid prerix
for DATA and SCRIPTS. I have attached the patch I have used (in combination
with --datadir configure option). Please fix this. Thanks in advance.
