Short answer: libfreetype-dev. I'll make message a little bit more informative

So far, I was able to manage to understand how to configure and update/upgrade GRUB in various scenarios.

Today, I again did git clone grub development master tree (snapshot), and tried to configure for platform coreboot, instead configuring for i386-pc.

After performing ./ I executed:
./configure --with-platform=coreboot --prefix=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/etc

The following error poped up: configure: error: qemu, powerpc-ieee1275, coreboot and loongson ports needs build-time grub-mkfont

I went to investigate a bit, and found that script expects to have ready/available tool/script called: grub-mkfont.

In fact, I do not have this one in my /usr (as for example /usr/local/sbin/grub-mkconfig):
address@hidden usr]$ pwd
address@hidden usr]$ find . -name grub-mkconfig
find: `./libexec/initscripts/legacy-actions/auditd': Permission denied
find: `./lib/firewalld': Permission denied
find: `./share/polkit-1/rules.d': Permission denied
address@hidden usr]$ find . -name grub-mkfont
find: `./libexec/initscripts/legacy-actions/auditd': Permission denied
find: `./lib/firewalld': Permission denied
find: `./share/polkit-1/rules.d': Permission denied
address@hidden usr]$

Question: how to fix this error? How to obtain script called grub-mkfont? Is there any known workaround for this?

YES, it is good to have SeaBIOS as Coreboot payload, since using FSP + Coreboot + SeaBIOS I can boot both Win7/Win8.x as well as Linux via GRUB, but I wanted also to try GRUB as payload to Coreboot!
