I think I know what you actually did:

./configure
make
./configure --prefix=/home/cdb/bin/grub
make
make install

"/usr/local" was hardcoded into grub-mkimage in the first run.  In the
second run, grub-mkimage wasn't rebuilt because it's not a script and
because config.h didn't change.

We don't want wrong path to be hardcoded in grub-mkimage.  Working it
around in scripts would keep grub-mkimage incorrect.

I think the best solution would be to add Makefile to
the ´╗┐grub-mkimage.o dependencies.  GRUB_LIBDIR is written to Makefile
and ´╗┐grub-mkimage.c uses it.  Here's the patch (*.mk changes are not
included):
