The powerpc version is not a good reference. From my point of view, it is far 
from user-friendly. When the user invokes grub-install, she expects that she 
can "install" GRUB, as the name stands for.

The best reference in GRUB is still the i386-pc version. The others should 
follow it as much as possible.

If an EFI shell is available, yes. On Intel Mac, the shell is not available by 
default, because of the graphics mode. For now, the only way to boot GRUB is 
to start Mac OS X and bless a boot image, or use a small program to switch to 
text mode and boot GRUB from a shell.
