bug#30311: efi-less grub install fails

User-agent: mu4e 0.9.18; emacs 25.3.1

“guix system init” fails with a configuration file that specifies
grub-bootloader (not grub-efi-bootloader).

“grub-install” reports an error about “lib/grub/x86_64-efi/modinfo.sh”
not being available.  It suggests passing “--target” or “--device”.

Our invocation of grub-install does not include a “--target” argument.
Only after I edited it to pass “--target=i386-pc” did “guix system init”

This is on an x86_64 laptop where “legacy” BIOS booting is enabled.
