Doesn't that put you back where you were with the "You need ruby to compile
grub2"?  The point of the PAYLOAD_AND_DEP_MK variable was supposed to be
that it got set (purposefully) in the config/payloads/<payload>.conf file.
I think it's reasonable to ask a developer to set the variable when he adds
the .conf file for a new package.

If my explanation above didn't address this, can you give me an example of a
new package that would get included without a .conf file?
