As I said before, the reason why GRUB doesn't work out of the box on PowerMacs
is that grub-ofpathname doesn't output OpenFirmware path names that the NewWorld
boot ROMs are able to parse. It's a single issue that - once it's fixed - will
immediately resolve the problem.

I'm fully aware that it's possible to manually fix the problem, but I cannot use
these hacks for the official Debian packages or even upstream GRUB.
