I couldnt compile grub2 with x86_64-efi parameter. It gives error 
like 'configure: error: platform "x86_64-efi" is not supported for target 
CPU "i386"' or 'CPU "x86_64"' etc.

I tried to use

./configure --with-platform=x86_64-efi  and
./configure --with-platform=x86_64-efi --target=x86_64-apple

I have
32 bit Pardus Linux installed on Intel Core 2 Duo T 5750,
32 bit Pardus Linux installed on Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2180,
64 bit Fedora Linux installed on AMD Athlon 64 Proccessor 3000+ and
64 bit MacOS X Server Leopard installed on 8-core Intel Xserve.

Could you tell me how can i compile grub2 as usable and which machine is 
suitable to compile grub2 with these parameters.

I wanna test grub2 on 64bit efi firmware and give you feedback about it. May 
be i can also help developing of grub with this work.
