I was more referring to the compilation process.  There's no autogen.sh and
no INSTALL file.  I noticed that the file named README actually is what I was
looking for, except that it doesn't say that you need automake1.7 (not sure
what you need, but 1.4 is not enough)

Furthermore, a short description of where to get L4 and how to compile it
would be nice, although not really necessary.

And I'm sure I have read in at least two places that the order in which
grub loads the modules is very important, but it isn't mentioned in the
README file.

Sounds interesting.  I'll see if I can set that up.

I'm not really skilled in making patches.  I used "cvs diff" to make this
one.  What would be the command to generate the patch as it should be?
