I was preparing the EFI app off-box.

I do not have any OS on the target machine so I'm putting grub.efi on a USB thumb drive.

Is grub-mkstandalone lacking something?

Well it's not working, is it?

I don't understand why you are able to run grub-mkstandalone to build the .efi core image, but you can't use grub-install or grub-mkrescue.

You kinda need to be running this on a UEFI machine, pretty sure there's a dependency on efibootmgr which won't be present on BIOS hardware running Linux.
