Exactly - we don't want Debian's customized grub, we want a patch that
enables pixmap support to apply against the stock grub 0.93 sources, and I
don't have the required programming knowledge to actually backport the
stuff from the debian tarball to apply to stock 0.93.

And also, this really belongs in BLFS-Support, since the pixmap patch is
not technically part of the LFS book.
