The line from grub.cfg is:

I plan to investigate, but if multiboot is broken, the reason becomes

Have you got MULTIBOOT defined in your kernel config ?

$ uname -v
NetBSD 8.0 (HYDRALISK) #1: Tue Jul 31 18:43:06 CEST 2018 root@hydralisk:/usr/obj/sys/arch/amd64/compile/HYDRALISK
$ grep MULTIBOOT /usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/conf/HYDRALISK
options         MULTIBOOT

Is there a reason why you don't want to use the NetBSD bootloader ?

I don't want to not use /boot. I use it on other boxes. On hydralisk, I use GRUB to maintain sysutils/grub2.
