This isn't a help list; in future, please use help-grub.

You should be able to ignore these.

On Ubuntu, install the texinfo package.  On other systems I assume it's
similar.  Read your system's documentation for how to find the package
containing a given command.

Ignore this.  Not all missing headers are errors; in this case, it's
checking whether you're on Minix, which you aren't.

These are only expected to be present on Mac OS X.

On GNU/Linux this is expected; you would expect to find
<sys/sysmacros.h> instead, which will be checked immediately afterwards.

Again, not all missing headers are errors.

Again, not all missing headers are errors.  When reporting problems, it
is important either to distinguish between normal output and errors, or
to simply provide the full output rather than paraphrasing.

On Ubuntu 10.04, you could simply use the existing grub-pc package.
