As best I can tell, the pkgsrc version will still have the same issue.
The pkgsrc version is 0.97, the "Legacy Grub", which is not being
developed. I don't know if Grub2 has addressed this issue.
This hasn't been an issue for me, since I have local patches if I ever
want to use grub again (since NetBSD can now boot xen with the native
bootloader, I don't have much use for grub anymore).
