sys-boot/grub has two slots. The default slot 0 with version numbers
around 0.92-0.97 is grub-1 (or grub legacy). Slot 2 with version numbers
around 1.99 is grub-2. Because it is still in development hell, it has
not reached version 2.00.
IIRC, sys-boot/grub-static is mostly there for systems that cannot
compile grub, for example AMD64 no-multilib profiles.
Hope this helps,
