Ok.  My last version is mostly consistent (/boot/grub path is a default, and
can be overriden the same way), the difference being that it doesn't take any
non-flag argument.  But I think this difference is reasonable, specially
considering that i386/pc/grub-install and powerpc/grub-install already differ
on this part.
