That must be it. I can't use refit < 0.10.

hmm. in which case, I wonder, it may only be possible for me to test 32-bits EFI images -- but we'll see. That could still be a useful thing to be able to test.

But we (GRUB) aren't refit -- we just need to know that we can't use that
kind of multi-arch image to support all x86 and x86-64 EFI platforms.

Yes, we can't create multi-arch image. We need to maintain them
seperately, i386-efi and x86_64-efi.

are we unable to (because refit uses the MacOS X toolchain (?) and we don't), or we just have no interest in doing so (because installers can have the smarts of figuring out which arch the firmware expects for the image?)
