My apologies. Thunderbird told me it was sending to this list. :(

Now, in regards to my question, here's what I'm using now (I only
need a few modules, *not* all of them, so the list is rather short):

grub-mkimage -d . --format x86_64-efi --config
'/home/user/Desktop/grub.cfg' -o ~/Desktop/boot.efi boot linux ext2
normal configfile lspci ls loadenv help echo fat exfat hfs hfsplus
part_msdos part_gpt part_apple multiboot multiboot2 terminal sleep
loopback normal fixvideo iso9660 loadbios setvariable applesetos

A couple of those are custom modules that I've patched in, but that
shouldn't really affect too much in the way of making the image.

I've looked at the grub-mkstandalone man page, and it is rather
sparse; it doesn't really even include examples of how to do things
like embedding a font file, or even including files. Could you advise
on how to properly invoke the command so that I can get a similar
result to the one above, but with an embedded font file?
