For anyone who requires this I modified the PKGBUILD to include grub-emu support. Please try (all other source files remain same as in the AUR tar.gz file).

I also don't think grub-emu is specifically required in grub pkg in the official repo. It is not used by everybody and it can be built from AUR if the user requires it.

My PKGBUILD has been incorporated by grub-bzr AUR maintainer into his PKGBUILD. I suppose this bug can be closed now.

The grub package doesn't appear to provide grub-emu at all even though the PKGBUILD seems to have code dedicated to doing so.

Closing this as "fixed" because an AUR package got it, makes no sense. Maybe if it was closed as "won't implement" I'd understand.

But then why does it *provide* something that is isn't actually packaged?
Also why include code to build it, then #ifdef (bash eqiv) the code out, if it will never ever be used?.
(This was only even added about a year after the feature request was closed as fixed...)
