I'm not too knowledgeable about grub, but have been messing around with
font configuration myself yesterday.  Just an idea: AFAICS
'grub-mkconfig' (i.e. 'update-grub') will set grub.cfg to load fonts
From /usr/{local/,}/share, not /boot, which failed in my case, and may
be causing trouble for you.  What happens if you put your fonts to /boot
and update grub.cfg accordingly?

I.e. add to (/usr/local)/etc/default/grub the line


and run update-grub,
