Could you send the details of your git repository? (I don't have it

thanks :-)

As far as I remember, gettext utilities uses a shell variable to search
for the .mo file (or to the directory where the .mo file is located). So
yes, we could test if /usr/locale/share/grub exists and failback to
/usr/share/locale/grub, etc.
(I can do something like this during the weekend)

I leave it to you since I'm not familiar with DISTLIST, etc.

ok. I think that adding Gettext to Grub is not a very BIG patch itself,
but it touches many places (Grub itself, Scripts, building system) that
makes difficult to prepare only one patch for everything.
