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.
