For grub2 compiled for EFI systems, you can try the AUR grub2-efi-bzr AUR package .

If you want grub2's built-in efi runtime support for loading Mac's XNU kernel directly in grub2 (for bios, in native grub2 EFI there is no efiemu), then pass "--enable-efiemu" to configure (requires gcc-multilib).

I don't mind if some TU wants to move these packages from AUR to extra or community repo and maintain it. I also maintain the bzr versions of these packages in AUR - please don't move/delete them.

Download the official packages from testing repo. skodabenz-arch-grub2-$arch repos will not be maintained.
