Re: [PATCH][meta-intel] grub: remove the dependency on freetype, disable grub-mkfont

Saul Wold <sgw@...>

Seeing this change reminded me that we really should move grub_1.98 to oe-core, is there any objection to this? Any reason this should not be part of oe-core to support general x86_64 machines?

Grub's configure task was picking up the host freetype libraries if
bitbake hadn't gotten around building freetype yet. We could add a
dependency on freetype, but it's only used for the optional grub-mkfont
utility which we don't really need.

Disable grub-mkfont via EXTRA_OECONF, removing the dependency on freetype.

Testing: core-image-minimal build and install on sugarbay.
