I don't know whether configfile and multiboot are documented in the
info pages (I find info unusable) but this is the upstream grub
I've just looked at the debian wiki's documentation and it's

ubuntuforums.org has a very good documentation thread/sticky and the
arch and gentoo wikis have good documentation.
