I followed this guide from point 5 (using grub1):

Before that I got the system installed with the L1 mini-iso (except the
partitioning which I did with another Debian GNU/Linux iso because the
Hurd one would take forever).

If I only knew how to do it, I would do it now. Well, unless I knew it
was a whole lot of complex work, which I assume it is since no one has
done it yet. :-P

Please tell me if you think it is something that I could fix.

As I understand it, the installation simply extracts a file called
baseGNU.tgz (at least that's the only thing I noticed it did). So
shouldn't it be possible to include grub configuration in it
(/boot/grub/?) and then make the installation execute grub-install or
something. But I don't know, it's probably more complicated than that.

I tried that, but it didn't work (I probably messed up, I had to write
the file using cat). Luckily I got another pre-configured GRUB image.
