Update. It seems the issue was caused some time ago when 'bootstrap' script was introduced into grub configuration.

The presence of grub-extras modules is checked in Previously it was called with configure in _build_grub-common_and_bios() where GRUB_CONTRIB is exported. Currently it is called in _prepare() as part of, but this happens before setting GRUB_CONTRIB variable. This means that when is executed, this variable is not set yet. I could fix this issue by moving export GRUB_CONTRIB to _prepare()

Do you move the export only or the copy commands as well? Can you provide a diff?

On the other hand... Given the little response to this bug report (no "me too!"), does it make sense to just drop this?

I think the i915 module can be dropped (I have written this report not because I need it, I was just digging in grub-extras).

Just removed grub-extras from build.
