Not really. grub-emu is a debugging tool, so, strictly speaking, it would be 
better to compile grub-emu with the build type...

They should use a build type instead of a host type, if any. GRUB does not 
have such a program any longer, as I have rewritten genmoddep with awk. IMO, 
it is not required in most cases to write this kind of programs in C these 
days, because scripting languages are good enough to assist build processes.
