True, but I briefly looked up what changed and none of these core macros have
been removed or deprecated and the new, stricter quoting rules have also worked
before and grub has either been updated accordingly or almost almost used
correct quoting from the beginning.

Given that those core macros are "possibly undefined", something else must be
going on. I'd check what autoreconf/autoconf reads.
