Subject: [gentoo-user] Grub2 and use-flags

1 I'm running grub 2 it seems. I don't know when that started, or what
2 difference it makes compared to legacy grub. I guess I don't need to know.
3 But a recent post had me looking at use-flags, and I was a bit surprised to
4 find (ncurses -static). If this refers to the part of grub that I run when
5 setting up or tweaking while Linux is already running, I guess that's
6 sensible. But does it have any effect on the boot sequence (because both of
7 those would strike me as badly broken).
9 I also wonder what -custom-cflags would be used for, and I don't get any
10 sensible answer from flagedit(1).
12 Just an inquiring mind...
