Can you post the link? There are different BSD licenses and we need to
check that it's really compatible. Even if the license is ok I feel
however against making a whole port depending on non-FSF code. If
someone agrees to make is from scratch I would prefer it. If noone
does then I would be ok with you making this port based on stubdom.
However I don't want grub2 to depend on stubdom (this could be
discussed). Then all files based on stubdom will have to be separated
from the main code and correctly aknowledged where it comes from. We
will need a copyright assignment from you. Also we need a permission
from Yoshinori K Okuji or Marco Gerards

They can be used only if they didn't drop "or later" clause of grub1's
license and only under same terms as BSD code
