I gave it a try now and made sure to use the proper grub-core directory and that
the kernel.img in /usr/local/lib/grub/powerpc-ieee1275/ is up-to-date, so 
went without an error message:

root@ibook-g4-14:/home/glaubitz/grub# grub-install -d ./grub-core 
--macppc-directory=/boot/grub --no-nvram
Installing for powerpc-ieee1275 platform.
grub-install: warning: cannot open directory `/usr/local/share/locale': No such 
file or directory.
Installation finished. No error reported.

However, after rebooting the machine, the machine is now unbootable. The 
is unable to even load GRUB. I'm just getting the question mark sign which 
that the firmware cannot find the bootloader.
