Why didn't you remove :

define GRUB_CONFIGURE_CMDS
	(cd $(GRUB_SRCDIR) && rm -rf config.cache && \
	$(TARGET_CONFIGURE_OPTS) \
	$(TARGET_CONFIGURE_ARGS) \
	$(GRUB_CONF_ENV) \
	./configure \
		--target=$(GNU_TARGET_NAME) \
		--host=$(GNU_TARGET_NAME) \
		--build=$(GNU_HOST_NAME) \
		--prefix=/ \
		--mandir=/usr/man \
		--infodir=/usr/info \
		$(DISABLE_DOCUMENTATION) \
		$(DISABLE_NLS) \
		$(DISABLE_LARGEFILE) \
		$(DISABLE_IPV6) \
		$(QUIET) $(GRUB_CONF_OPT) \
	)
endef

This might be handled by the autotool infrastructure.
Otherwise it looks good, thx !
