That sounds like it is probably more of a question for the automake
list.  But this seems like a pretty specific case, not supported in the
generic automake program transformation abilities, so my guess is that
it will probably have to be more like a patch specific to the grub to allow something like ./configure
--with-package-name=grub2 as a way to then trigger an automake
conditional, where then determines whether to install into
grub or into grub2 based on the conditional.
