If you mean getting an actual bootable disk image out of it like I'm
trying to do now?  So that I can hand it to real hardware soon.

Just wasted a day beating up grub legacy. Think I got it in shape now.
The patches supplied with the version used in the last LFS that used
grub legacy don't actually apply, no matter which patch program you
use.  The advice to set the compiler flags is just plain wrong.  No one
ever actually tested the --disable-nls configure option.  #if
statements refer to symbols that are not defined, instead of using
#ifdef.  I'm sure there was more I can't recall right now.

I seriously think that since that was the last grub legacy that FSF
published, that they went to the effort of breaking it.  But, never
ascribe to malice what can be accounted for with stupidity.

/me puts his hand up.  I've even modified one of the scripts in there
to suit my needs.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
