Bug#80422: can't compile: texi2html option parsing changed

Package: grub
Severity: normal

I was trying to compile grub when I got the following error,
which caused debian/rules to fail.

> top=`pwd` && cd debian/tmp/usr/share/doc/grub && \
>   ln -s $top/docs/{grub,multiboot}.texi . && \
>   texi2html -split_chapter -I$top/docs grub.texi && \
>   texi2html -split_chapter -I$top/docs multiboot.texi && \
>   rm -f grub.texi multiboot.texi
> Unknown option: I/home/kalle/build/i386-pc-linux-gnu/Debian/grub-
> Usage: texi2html  [OPTIONS] TEXINFO-FILE

The option parsing of texi2html has been changed so that one must
now use -I directory instead of -Idirectory.  That change goes
against the tradition of single-letter option usage, and I don't
like it, but the upstream maintainer apparently does and grub
should be made to cope with it.

Also, -split chapter is now recommended instead of
