Just in case, there is a git mirror of the repository, updated every 2
hours.  More information here:

./ && ./configure && make -j2
./grub-mkrescue --pkglibdir=. --grub-mkimage=./grub-mkimage grub.iso
qemu -cdrom grub.iso

That will make a bootable CD image using only files from the source
directory and boot it in qemu.  You may need to use the --overlay option
to grub-mkrescue to include fonts, the menu, the fancy stuff etc :-)
