Currently --program-transform-name configure option renames both the grub2
utilities as well as grub boot dir. 

I want to install grub2 bios and grub2 uefi in the same system and I want the
utilities to be like grub2_bios-install and grub2_efi-install but grub boot
dir to be /boot/grub2 for bios and <EFI_SYS_PART>/efi/grub2 for uefi. Although
the grub2 uefi boot dir is portable, it is not so for grub2 bios (as the path
is hard-coded in core.img)

With the present --program-transform-name, I get either grub2_bios-install
and /boot/grub2_bios/ (or) grub2-install and /boot/grub2/.

How about a separate (and similar) option for grub boot dir alone?

Not sure if this info is needed, but I use GPT (not Hybrid MBR) with 1MB BIOS
Boot Partition. My system support both legacy bios boot mode and uefi x86_64
boot mode. I boot Win 7 x64 Pro using UEFI-GPT mode.
