 When you've got to the end, it's usually best to *wait* for advice,
repeating the build without understanding the problem is not a
reliable way to get better results!

 As you guessed, separate boot partitions can give problems with
grub2.  In my case (also with separate /boot partitions) I have a
directory 'boot' on the boot partition (i.e. /boot/boot when
everything is mounted) containing a symlink called 'grub' pointing
to ../grub.  I think that I created it (with /boot mounted, so from
the host system) using
 mkdir /boot/boot
 ln s ../grub /boot/boot

 I think this is necessary because grub installed its many
components into /boot/grub and assumes that is where they should be
when it needs them.
