I think automake can't do the job. The grub2 build process is
complicated. For example, it needs to go through all the object files
to generate the module dependence trunk, and append it to *.o to form
the final *.mod. I believe it's very tricky to write a automake script
to handle this.
However, I don't like that it uses ruby to generate makefiles. Ruby is
not a standard component, so there is a chance that user don't install
it. I guess perl would be better.
