Glad you posted this.  I looked at the USE flags for grub not a package 
called grub-static.  That seems to be two different beasts.  I never 
knew that package existed.  Would emerging the plain grub with the 
static USE flag give the same results?  I would think not else they 
would just have one package but am curious just the same.

Thanks.
