We can detect hfs-partitions, thats where bootx lives. os-prober already does 
this. Now the thing left to do is to find bootx :) IIRC (please correct / add 
more details) it's in a directory called bootx? And there is a bootx binary 
of which name?

Ok, if it's not possible to detect an existing bootx installation, what I 
somewhat doubt, I'll close it then. But first I'll wait for your reply :)
