When you run './configure', the default prefix under which the programs
are installed is '/usr/local'.  So, to run the GRUB 2 programs,
run /usr/local/bin/grub-install, etc.

You can also change the prefix with './configure --prefix=/opt/grub2'
for instance.  I would recommend you do NOT use '/usr' as the prefix
for hand-compiled installations when you have GRUB legacy (or even an
instance of GRUB 2) installed with your OS distribution's package
management system.
