I've been working for a few hours in a GRUB port to i386/OFW.  There's
quite a bit of things that need cleanup/fix before it can be considered
complete, but it's in a stage that boots and lets you do basic things (like
listing storage devices).

It's known to work on OLPC / XO.  I don't have a working unit myself, but
someone from #olpc was kind enough to test it and even provided a screenshot:

I'll be gradually integrating this into official GRUB tree.  In the meantime,
if you want to try it:

  - checkout GRUB cvs (grub2 module)
  - apply attached patch
  - ./ && ./configure --with-platform=ieee1275 && make kernel.elf
