Wrong. I do it every time I build a kernel.

That's because they run grub-mkconfig. It's way too much to mess with
themes for GRUB. The screen is only up for a couple of seconds and then
you select the kernel and you never go back until you reboot.
You can do a lot of things with GRUB from themes to complex booting over
a serial line, network, multiple drives, themes, mouse use, etc, but for
a LFS system you only need a very simple entry the up/down keys and enter.
It's you distro, so do it the way you want, but it really isn't hard
unless you want to do more than boot up.
