I'm running a new system with a fresh install of FreeBSD 5.2.1 on i386, with 
GCC 3.3.3 and have been trying to install the GRUB 0.94 boot loader.
Got the .tar.gz file, untarred it, and ran the configure script from the 
grub-0.94 directory with no special options.  Typed make and ran into a message 
saying couldn't compile stage1.  I looked around at all the makefiles in the 
directories (stage1, stage2, utils, docs, grub) and did make and then make 
install in each dir.  After doing this in the grub directory, I could run the 
grub program, and after going this in the docs directory I could run man pages, 
and after make and make install in the utils directory I could (try) and run 
grub-install and grub-terminfo, meaning these programs and docs compiled 
nicley.  It's the stage1 and 2 directories that are giving me problems.

How can I install grub?

Wild guess... try 'gmake' instead of 'make'. You may have to install it from 
(/usr/ports/devel/gmake). FreeBSD make uses a different syntax than GNU make 
and IIRC GRUB depends on the latter. HTH.

And use the grub port (ports/sysutils/grub) please. It has all FreeBSD specific patches (and UFS2 patch as bonus :) ).
