grub-kbdcomp tool requires ckbcomp in order to work:
  ckbcomp $ckbcomp_options | "$grub_mklayout" -o "${output}"
Please add sys-apps/ckbcomp to the RDEPEND.

Maybe other grub scripts need additional external tools as well. If such grub scripts can be considered optional, it may be reasonable to put them and their deps under USE="tools".
Comment 1 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2019-07-28 16:20:24 UTC
sys-apps/ckbcomp only has KEYWORDS="~amd64", and has no active Gentoo maintainer, which makes this request difficult to fulfill. This seems like a function very few people will utilize anyway, so I don't think it warrants an unconditional RDEPEND entry.

I would accept a patch to document this dependency via readme.gentoo-r1.eclass.
