grub on -current?

Is anyone using this successfully?  I had to install it from Linux.  The
grub.conf below works when installed by the Linux grub-install but
FreeBSD's port always fails with the below messages.  Package: grub-0.92

The other problem is I think grub cannot boot UFS2 partitions so I'm using
UFS1.

laptop# grub-install /dev/ad0
/dev/ad0 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.

laptop# grub-install '(hd0)'
/dev/ad0s4a does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.

laptop# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
default 0
timeout 10

title Windows
root (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

title  FreeBSD
root   (hd0,3,a)
kernel /boot/loader

title  Linux
kernel (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5

Thanks,
Nate
