Grub 1.98 comes with the gfxmenu patch.  The code used to include the entries
in 00_header currently only adds the theme name, but nothing else.  Due to
either a bug or feature, currently grub do not load dependencies
automatically.  This means that when using a theme, it will not load the image
modules or fonts required by the selected theme, making it to fail to load at

I included a patch that searches the theme directory, and add the entries
just before the theme file.
How to reproduce:
  1. Put a GRUB_THEME entry with your theme in /etc/default/grub.
  2. Generate your grub.cfg with grub-mkconfig
  3. Reboot
  4. The theme will not load at all.

The patch was tested against both grub 1.98 and trunk r2263
