The grub maintainer is telling you that the way in which you're trying 
to use grub is broken. You *need* to use the grub files that are in 
guest, not the host. This will be even more true with grub 2. It's not a 
matter of disliking the approach, it's a matter of it being demonstrably 
technically incorrect.
