I usually setup grub manually instead of using the wrapper scripts.  It's

Just copy stage1, stage2, and the relevant stage1_5 from /usr/pkg/lib/grub/...
into /grub, and run "grub" on the command line:

grub> root (hd0,0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)

Assuming your dom0 (with the stage files) is on the first MBR partition of
the first disk, and you want to install grub on the first disk.  Yes, grub
has its own notation for disks and partitions, but it has tab-completion
which makes it trivial enough.

You can then create a boot-menu in /grub/menu.lst.  There are many references
on the Net about it.
