`guix system --no-grub` will actually build out grub.cfg in the store,
just not write it to the actual bootloader configuration. So you can try
to `find /gnu/store -maxdepth 1 -name '*grub.cfg'` and copy it in place.
It will also print the location when running `reconfigure`:
address@hidden ~# guix system reconfigure --no-grub /etc/config.scm

I think making the <grub-configuration> field take a "copy-only?" option
would be a decent fix for now. Currently the build code expects to run
"grub-install", look into gnu/system/grub.scm and gnu/build/install.scm

We don't have libreboot in Guix yet, but the ability to install it at
reconfigure time would be nice. Sounds risky, though :)
