I have tested this on separate distros, including but not limited to:

located in /usr/share/grub and not in /boot/grub.  As it is, the fully 
qualified filename works as intended.  Placing the themes in /usr/share/grub 
removes the incompatibility of having a separate /boot partition and also 
removes any incompatibility from  some distro that use /boot/grub2 instead of 
Then think about a separate /usr. theme files are static and have no way of knowing about adjusted for some reason directories. Moreover / and /usr may be unavailable to GRUB, e.g. it may be on NFS or encrypted. We can assume only that the $prefix with subdirectories and files needed to boot OS (in case of GNU/Linux it's Linux and initrd in /boot, other OS may have files outside /boot which may assume readable e.g. /mach_kernel for xnu). That's the reason I've adjusted grub-install to copy theme and fonts to $prefix/themes resp $prefix/fonts.
