Hi Mathieu!

I changed my mind. I think it is better in a first step to keep the convention 
to have a fixed /boot/grub/grub.cfg. Therefore I create another link at 
/<target>/efi/boot/grub.cfg pointing to that file. Then there is no trouble 
with the <boot-parameters> yet, and the grub-efi-net-bootloader doesn't need to 
know about the target directory before installation.

I removed the macro as well, hence fixing the path to efi/boot. To boot 
different systems – because of the grub.cfg link – there needs to be some 
redirection via PXE or DNS on some higher level. With the macro you could have 
several /<target>/efi/Guix<n> directories on the same tftp server, but their 
grub.cfg link would still all point to the same location: 
../../../boot/grub/grub. So the macro makes no sense anymore.
