I also use my package manager (dpkg and apt) to install everything
during normal use; however, phcoder wanted me to try some changes
against trunk and my distro's packaging (debian) isn't tracking trunk
Even if debian was tracking GRUB's trunk directly, when upstream asks me
to test against trunk, i try to test against "vanilla" trunk (without
any distro patches) so i can rule out the distro as the source of any
Anyway, "make uninstall" should behave better than it did here, i think.
